The Intersectional Health Project San Diego (IHPSD) is a student driven initiative to galvanize public activism in response to the many health-related issues facing the immigrant and low income communities of San Diego. Situated just 18 miles from the busiest land border crossing in the western hemisphere, San Diego is a microcosm of global diversity and poverty, with a regional ecology exhibiting public health, environmental, urban, and political issues that persist across borders.
