DO YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR COMMUNITY?
The Gravenstein Health Action Chapter is a partnership of local leaders, organizations, and individuals dedicated to improving health and well-being and reducing disparities in the areas of Sebastopol, Graton, Occidental/Freestone, and Bodega/Bodega Bay. The Chapter is connected to the countywide Health Action effort that focuses on three impact areas: a long and healthy life, educational attainment, and a comfortable standard of living. Recently, Health Action has reaffirmed its priorities. The Gravenstein Health Action Chapter is seeking community input to determine which priorities we take on locally and what strategies we employ to affect change.
Health is much more than absence of disease! A healthy community addresses social, environmental and economic issues that impact health, safety and well-being. For example:
- food security
- access to clean air and water
- a crime-free neighborhood
- access to education
- access to wages that allow us to live in Sonoma County
- affordable housing
- access to medical care
