 Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH)

 In September 2014, the Fresno County Department of Public Health received a Partnerships to Improve Community Health (PICH) grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. PICH is a three-year initiative that supports public health efforts to reduce chronic diseases, promote healthier lifestyles, reduce health disparities and control health care spending. philogo.JPG

 The Department has partnered with the Public Health Institute to provide and administer policy, systems and environmental change efforts under the PICH grant. 

 Project Overview  

Fresno County PICH works with community-based organizations, schools, businesses, and local cities in Fresno County to make healthy living easier and more affordable where people live, learn, work, and play. 

To improve health and wellness in Fresno County, PICH is focused on the following risk factors: 

  •  Tobacco use and exposure 
  •  Poor nutrition  

 Initiatives
