Summary:

The Central Valley Health Policy Institute (CVHPI) has been committed to addressing health inequities in the Central San Joaquin Valley for close to a decade. CVHPI has long understood the need to bring multiple organizations from different sectors together to address the social determinants of health that contribute to some of the worst health outcomes in the country.  The Leadership Learning Community is partnering with CVHPI to increase the capacity of the organization and a core group of its graduates and collaborators by conducting an analysis of the existing network and training the staff on ways to improve the connectivity and strength of the network.  The goal is to mobilize a regional network of organizations committed to addressing the social determinants of health in the Central San Joaquin Valley.
