The award recognizes people who have demonstrated a commitment to increasing California’s health care workforce and its diversity. Manoleas is a lecturer and a field social work consultant at the School of Social Welfare at the University of California, Berkeley, and has a private practice in Oakland, Calif. He serves on the board of directors for La Clinica de la Raza, which provides accessible health care for Alameda, Contra Costa and Solomeda counties in California.

“We’re all looking forward to health care reform,” Manoleas says in the interview on YouTube. “That has profound implications for the way everyone does their jobs, including nonmedical folks like social workers.”
