CA4Health is a 5-year Community Transformation Grant from the CDC focused on reducing the burden of chronic disease in rural communities throughout California. A collaboration between the Public Health Institute (PHI) and the California Department of Public Health, CA4Health provides local county partners with tools, training and guidance to make their communities healthier.  CA4Health’s 4 strategic directions are reducing consumption of sugary beverages, increasing availability of smoke-free housing, creating safe routes to schools (SR2S), and providing people with chronic disease with skills and resources to manage their illness. NRS has been contracted by the Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Public Health Branch to build capacity for SR2S programs in Humboldt County.
