Date:11/12/2008

s School of Public Health and the founder and executive director emeritus of the Violence Prevention Coalition of Greater Los Angeles.

Weiss' research has investigated subjects including gang violence and violence against intimate partners. She has authored or co-authored numerous papers, including a study of a gang-violence epidemic in Los Angeles, and is considered an expert on the public health approach to reducing violence. Weiss is the former director of the Los Angeles County's Injury and Violence Prevention Program.

"Things are not changing fast enough," said Weiss. "We need everybody we can muster. I keep looking to build that critical mass of people that can tip this epidemic so that we really look at prevention and community building as opposed to locking youth up."

The California Wellness Foundation is an independent, private foundation created in 1992 with a mission to improve the health of the people of California by making grants for health promotion, wellness education and disease prevention. The Foundation prioritizes eight issues for funding: diversity in the health professions, environmental health, healthy aging, mental health, teenage pregnancy prevention, violence prevention, women's health, and work and health. It also responds to timely issues or special projects outside the funding priorities.

Since its first founding in 1992, TCWF has awarded 5,299 grants totaling $660 million. It is one of the state's largest private foundations.
