New Location!

We invite you to join SCG and the LA County Department of Public Health to learn about the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) for LA County and opportunities for strategic, cross-sector partnerships to support healthy and vibrant communities. Due to the popularity of this program, we have changed locations to accommodate more participants!

Cynthia A. Harding, Interim Director of the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (DPH) and staff from DPH’s Office of Planning will lead this session, which will include an interactive panel discussion with community organizations that are working with the department on CHIP implementation strategies:

  • Joe Donlin, Associate Director / Director of Equitable Development, SAJE-Strategic Actions for a Just Economy

  • Gwendolyn Flynn, Policy Director, Nutrition Resources Development, Community Health Councils

  • Rosemary Veniegas, Ph.D., Senior Program Officer, Health, California Community Foundation

The conditions in which we live, work, study, and play all influence health. Achieving healthy communities with healthy people requires active engagement across sectors, including government, business, health care, community-based organizations, and funders.

CHIP offers a roadmap for improved health and health equity for LA County residents. The plan integrates input from stakeholders collected through regional community meetings and includes measurable objectives toward a reduction in obesity rates, air pollution, violence, and traffic-related injuries, as well as an increase in high school graduation rates and access to safe, quality affordable housing.

We encourage funders who focus not only on health and wellness, but also on affordable housing, education, transportation, social justice, and children/youth and families to join us in the dialogue.
