Community Health Action Map Partners (CHAMP) Highlight Community Engagement Groups

The San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative, Community Domain, in collaboration with the University of San Diego Center for Community Health, the County of San Diego and various community stakeholders launched a new tool this year that maps community engagement groups that empower and train residents to make positive changes in their neighborhoods. The resource highlights groups focused on increasing access to healthy foods and beverages, opportunities for physical activity, and safe routes to healthy places throughout San Diego County.

The goals of the interactive map are to:

  • Chart the collective ideas and networks surrounding community engagement efforts within San Diego County
  • Connect peer-to-peer with other community engagement groups and residents working on similiar focus areas in the same places
  • Inform ongoing projects and cross-collaboration
  • Identify groups working to increase access to healthy foods and beverages, physical activity opportunities, and safe routes to healthy places

If you have any questions, contact Nina Ghatan at nghatan@sdchip.org or 858-609-7964.
