My name is Darrell “DJ” Jerome. I work as a Medical Assistant at the Brea Medical Offices. I am running with the Healthcare Justice Slate in our upcoming SEIU-UHW Executive Board Elections.
I have worked for Kaiser Permanente for 26 years in Orange County. I have been a Chief Steward for 25+ years and I am one of the current Co-Representational Chairs in Orange County. I am a past Contract Specialist.
I have served my members throughout the years as an incumbent on the Local 399 and SEIU-UHW Executive Boards.
My mission is Healthcare Justice: We need to ensure that everyone has the right to Healthcare. We need to address the healthcare disparities among the communities we live in and the populations that we serve — whether it be the racial inequalities or the economical inequalities that are causing the lack of access to healthcare. To quote the late great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr:
“Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.”
– Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
