The Story

Improving Health and Health Care for All Californians

The Let’s Get Healthy California Task Force was started in 2012 with the purpose of developing a ten year plan to make California the healthiest state in the nation. The Task Force was composed of California leaders in health and healthcare from the public and private sectors, who came together to develop the six goal areas and identified key indicators to measure our progress towards this goal becoming the healthiest state in the nation.

“This is a very bottom-up effort where we want to provide the tools, and the resources, and hopefully the inspiration for people to take charge of their own health – because at the end of the day, that’s really what has to happen.”
– Secretary Diana Dooley
