HOPE Aldine Site Manger
Leslie Cordova has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mass Communication and has served the Greater Houston Alief community since 2016. Her start in public health began with the Episcopal Health Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting and supporting innovative community solutions that prioritize “health, not just healthcare.” Through her work with EHF, she learned about HOPE Clinic’s community-centered approach to healthcare. As HOPE Clinic’s previous Community-Centered Health Home Coordinator (CCHH), Leslie helped steer this initiative, by encouraging a culture of going beyond the clinic walls to address social determinants of health and promote health equity. She is now the site manager for HOPE Clinic’s new Aldine location, as part of East Aldine’s Town Center project, a community steered project promoting holistic health. She works closely with local community leaders to provide affordable and quality healthcare while targeting and addressing the root causes of health disparities in an effort to build healthier communities.
