Our June Hero of the Month is UFC alumnus Torhon Barnes! Torhon spent 15 years as a social work professional and is currently the Chief of Staff at Orange County Health Care Agency. Torhon is also an advocate of the LGBTQIA+ community and through his position at L.A. Care Health Plan, he was able to lead initiatives to better serve and support the LGBTQIA+ community. This included managing the TransHealth Program serving transgender members, overseeing annual PRIDE parade participation, and community and employee engagement activities.
Torhon’s purpose in life is to assist individuals in their efforts to turn tragedies into triumphs. We’re so proud of all that he’s accomplished and the social work he’s done to improve the outcomes for underserved communities. There is not a more deserving honoree, particularly during Pride Month. Thank you for all that you do, Torhon!
