Our future depends on the actions we take today. Reducing health disparities in Northern California begins with a strong vision.

The Center brings people, ideas and infrastructure together to create positive change. Our collective impact model seeks to improve community health in California.

Every person in California should be able to live a healthy life. That’s the vision we stand by and the journey we are committed to. The Center works to promote health, racial equity and racial justice in communities throughout California with local, state and national partners.

With strategy, creativity and ongoing collaboration, The Center strives to eradicate health inequities across the state, especially within the underserved San Joaquin Valley. Learn more.
