Rapper YG was honored by the Mayor of Los Angeles, for his TeleHealth Van business.
The rapper was celebrated at the private home of Mayor Eric Garcetti for his company TeleHealth Van. TeleHealth Van was founded by YG, Dion Rambo and Todd Gurley.

The meetings are virtual and the patrons never have to leave their neighborhood. Mayor Eric Garcetti invited YG and his team into his private home, where they shared their personal missions, obstacles, and encouragement.
The company received the Official Congratulatory Award from City of L.A. for completing 5,000-visits in one year, an official award from Councilman Curren D. Price, Council District 9 and a Community Award from GLAAAC.
