California Chronic Disease Prevention Leadership Project
Chronic disease is the leading cause of premature morbidity and mortality.
We strengthen health department capacity to prevent chronic disease and improve health equity.
About Our Project
The California Chronic Disease Prevention Leadership Project is a collaboration of California’s local and state public health leaders dedicated to preventing chronic disease and related disparities.
Place an integrated approach to chronic disease prevention higher on the agenda of every local health department, and address the fundamental conditions that determine a community’s health.
Elevate chronic disease prevention as a higher priority for local health departments, and develop capacity to prevent chronic disease and improve health equity.
California health departments prioritize upstream chronic disease prevention to eliminate preventable chronic disease and health inequities.
The Strategic Plan describes the Leadership Project’s unique role in California’s public health landscape, as well as the Project’s values, guiding principles, key contributions to the field, goals, priorities, and activities.
