Building Healthy Communities in California

Building Healthy Communities (BHC) is a ten-year, comprehensive community initiative that is
creating a revolution in the way Californians think about and support health in their communities.

In 14 places across California,
residents are proving that they have the power to make health happen in their neighborhoods, schools and with prevention—and in doing so, they're creating a brighter future for their children and for our state. BHC Online helps support this statewide effort and is completely run and managed by 14 BHC Hubs. Click any of the communities on the left navigation bar to find out more or read community perspectives below.
