Enjoy this great conversation and share with your friends and
Talitha Phillips was originally introduced to Claris Health as a
client who witnessed the organization’s life-changing work
firsthand. She has now served as the CEO for twenty years,
spearheading the transition from a small resource center to a
licensed medical clinic with sites in West and South LA as well as
a mobile clinic that brings care to underserved communities
throughout LA County.
Throughout the past decades, Talitha has remained an
instrumental advocate for children, born and yet-to-be born, and
has implemented a model of care that addresses racial and health
disparities especially among people of color. Claris'
approach to medical,
counseling, and support services cares for women
and families before, during, and after unintended or other
challenging pregnancies. Before joining Claris Health in
2001, Talitha worked at the United States Senate in
Washington D.C. and holds a B.A. in
Organizational Communication from Pepperdine University.
Talitha lives in Los Angeles with her two
daughters. As a family, they advocate for underserved
children, foster youth, and adoption, and they have led numerous
teams to Uganda, Africa to work with orphans and victims of
violence and human trafficking.
