Health is a gift.
One that allows us to create lives full of possibility and communities full of prosperity. We’re working to ensure every resident of San Joaquin County has access to that gift: That they have the resources to keep their body, mind and relationships healthy as they build a brighter future for themselves and for our region.
Together, we can build a community where…
Residents have access to quality, affordable health care
Families have access to restorative mental health and rehabilitation services
No parent has to worry about putting healthy food on the table
Every resident is active and has access to nature and green space
