Mission & Vision

"Improving the quality and length of life of rural Californians through advocacy, collaboration and education"

Engaging All Elements That Impact Health Status

A recent study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation reveals that clinical services accounts for ONLY 20% of  factors that impact our health status. CSRHA strategies and initiatives are designed address all the areas of impact as shown below:


These factors are based on a model of population health that identifies and acknowledges that many factors impact a communities’ health. Additional information on each of these factors is found on the Robert Wood Johnson website: http://www.countyhealthrankings.org/our-approach

CSRHA works with health organizations along with public health departments, city and county governments, consumer groups, local industry, major employers and others to collaborate on strategies and solutions that will allow rural communities to achieve optimal quality and length of life.
