Taylor Gann
Health Education and Outreach Manager

Taylor Gann is a Health Educator at San Benito Health Foundation. “I provide individual nutrition education to our women, infant, and children through our WIC department. I also help to counsel our chronic patients through our Case Management Services, as well as our expectant mothers through our perinatal services. In addition, I provide comprehensive health care by referring our patients to Medical, Dental, Ophthalmology, and Behavioral Health Services. I believe inclusive health care is extremely important for the overall well-being of patients and here at San Benito Health Foundation this is exactly what we offer. It makes me happy to know I am a part of a team that has so much to offer its patients.”

Taylor graduated from Cal Poly Pomona, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nutrition Science and is originally from Southern California. Ready to apply the skills she had learned during her schooling, it became clear that Hollister was the perfect place to do just that. “I speak both English and Spanish, and find it extremely rewarding to help and educate those in need. Working with a diverse group of individuals has taught me the importance of humility and community support on multiple levels. I am honored to be able to work with such an amazing group of community members every single day.” In the future Taylor plans to pursue a Master’s program to become a Physician’s Assistant in order to practice medicine to provide inclusive treatment to those in need.
