Gravenstein Health Action Chapter


Help us help you

The Gravenstein Health Action Chapter is a partnership of local leaders, organizations, and individuals dedicated to improving health & wellness, and reducing disparities in the areas of Sebastopol, Graton, Occidental/Freestone, and Bodega/Bodega Bay. 

The chapter is connected to the countywide Health Action effort, which focuses on three impact areas: a long and healthy life, educational attainment, and a comfortable standard of living. Recently, Health Action has reaffirmed its priorities, and as a result, the Gravenstein chapter is currently seeking community input to determine which priorities to take on locally, and which strategies will be the most beneficial.
