Delta College named among top 150 community colleges

San Joaquin Delta College was named one of the country’s top 150 community colleges by the Aspen Institute College Excellence Program. The school was chosen from a pool of more than 1,000 public, two-year colleges. It will be able to compete for the 2017 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence and $1 million in prize funds.

The school was chosen to be among the top 150 schools based on publicly available data on student outcomes in three areas. Those areas include performance (graduation, retention, ext), improvement (awarded for steady improvement in each performance metric over time) and equity (evidence of strong completion outcomes for minority and low-income students).

Ten finalists will be chosen in fall, 2016. The Aspen Institute will then conduct site visits to each campus and collect additional information. A prize jury will select a grand prize winner and several finalists with distinction in early 2017... Read More

San Joaquin County to Launch Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Services for HIV Prevention

San Joaquin County to Launch Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis Services for HIV Prevention

Submitted by Krista Dommer, San Joaquin County Public Health Services

Approximately 80 San Joaquin County Residents become newly infected with HIV every year

San Joaquin County Public Health Services (PHS) will begin offering HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) in February. 

PrEP is a way for people who do not have HIV, but who have an increased chance of getting it, to prevent HIV infection by taking a pill called Truvada every day. Truvada has been shown to be safe and to help HIV-negative people to stay that way. PrEP is used along with other prevention methods, such as condoms. When taken daily, PrEP can reduce the chance of getting HIV by more than 90 percent. If not taken daily, PrEP will not be as protective against HIV infection.
