Champions for Health is the new name for the San Diego County Medical Society Foundation. As we have matured over the past 11 years, and as Health has taken on a greater meaning than just healthcare, we have been blessed with a growing number of champions working with us to improve the health of our community. Recognizing and incorporating all these important partners is what Champions for Health exemplifies.
Our partners have helped us to expand from providing access to specialty care through Project Access San Diego, to a wide variety of prevention programs focused on our community’s most vulnerable residents. One in five adults in San Diego County are at a high risk for poor health because they do not have health insurance. The vast majority are employed, but do not have access to health insurance through their employment. Others are family members working hard to raise their children, and the cost of insurance is too great a burden on their family budget.
Even with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act in early 2014 and increased numbers of people eligible for health insurance, there are still be too many adults in our community uninsured, underinsured, or with limited access to care and preventative services. It is the working poor families that are the most often vulnerable to poor health. This gap is where the services of the Champions for Health are most needed.

Leslieane was only 29 years old and mother to two young children, when she was beset with a number of serious health problems. Doctors’ diagnoses included ulcerative colitis, chronic fatigue syndrome, Reiter’s Disease, Sjogren’s Disease, and fibromyalgia. Adding to, or perhaps due to, the state of her health, she also suffered a miscarriage. Stricken physically, emotionally, and spiritually, she embarked on treatment recommended by physicians, consisting of an array of prescription drugs, steroid injections, even chemotherapy. Sadly, none of these remedies worked consistently.
It was during these dark days that Leslieane had three near-death experiences (NDE’s), but each time was called back to life. Finally, the trauma and crises that continued to define her existence brought Leslieane to a critical point of connection between soul and Creator, allowing her to look deep within herself and uncover the spiritual roots of her maladies. Destructive conditioning, false attitudes toward self, and dysfunctional mental tapes damaging to her auric field, were evident as she shed layers of “sick” thinking and embraced the Light and joy of her authentic self. Today, Leslieane is free from illness and has fully regained her vitality. Years of bloodwork clear from pathology are physical evidence of her complete recovery.
Leslieane’s journey out of illness was just the beginning, as she became impassioned to learn the fundamentals of mind-body health and holistic healing practices. Thus began years of immersing herself in the study of organic physiological chemistry, holistic integrative nutrition, Ayurvedic medicine, massage therapy, and counseling skills.
Through her natural gifts and acquired knowledge, Leslieane offers intuitive evaluation and holistic healing to anyone seeking relief from suffering – whether in body, mind, or Spirit. For over 20 years, she has maintained her Solana Beach private practice as a medical intuitive, certified clinical nutritionist, licensed massage therapist, and holistic health practitioner. Not intending to replace standard medical practices or treatment, Leslieane considers herself an educator and guide, identifying blockages and lighting the way to a path of living which nourishes the whole body and allows emergence of one’s Higher Self. As she firmly attests, “Dwelling in our Higher Self is where true health, peace, and inner joy are possible in the earthly plane.”
