Working Together to Improve South County Communities

Live Well San Diego Community Leadership Teams tie together the collective efforts of community groups and stakeholders in each region and provide a central point for planning and organizing collaborative action. The Live Well San Diego South Region Leadership Team was formed in October 2010 with the goal of improving community wellness and reducing health disparities among children and families living in South Region San Diego.  The Leadership Team brings together public health agencies, local governments, school districts, health care organizations and professionals, and community-based organizations to promote policy, environment and systems changes that create safe, healthy and equitable communities. These activities help to inform the regions’ Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP) which details key priorities, strategies, resources, projects and programs that can be leveraged to address the Building Better Health Living Safely  and Thriving components of the Live Well San Diego vision specifically in the South Region.
