Collaborating With Communities to Improve the Lives of the People of Inland Southern California

The Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) at the University of California, Riverside promotes research to improve the health of the culturally and economically diverse communities in Inland Southern California, especially those that are medically underserved.

The center fosters collaborations between UCR faculty, community-based organizations, grass-roots community leaders, and investigators at RAND and UCLA. Although the center is housed in the UCR School of Medicine, the intention is for it to be of benefit to all UCR faculty and programs and to community-based partners.
