California Alliance of Academics and Communities for Public Health Equity

The California Alliance of Academics and Communities for Public Health Equity (the Alliance) is a new statewide policy, training, and research collaboration. We aim to amplify the voice of schools and programs of public health in partnership with communities disproportionately impacted by health disparities in order to build a common agenda, to grow a workforce dedicated to advancing health equity and to catalyze substantive policy change.
