The goal of the Community Wellness Program is to reduce and prevent chronic disease, including diabetes, obesity and heart disease within the Toiyabe service area. We work to create healthier communities by making healthy living easier and more affordable where people work, live, learn, and play. To achieve this goal we create partnerships with local Tribes, agencies, organizations, and groups that share the vision of healthy communities in the Eastern Sierra.

The Community Wellness Program is currently supported by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) grants Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) and Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health (REACH). PICH activities and funding ends in September 2017. REACH projects and funding will continue through September 2018. PICH is working to make healthy living easier and more affordable where people live, learn, work, and play. REACH uses a community-based, participatory approach to identify, develop, and disseminate effective strategies for addressing health disparities.
How do we accomplish all of this work? We collaborate! Our partners are integral to the success of our projects and the success of making our communities healthier. In no particular order, here are our awesome partners:
