We are a Community!
Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic
This week is Community Health Improvement Week. We want to use this blog to talk about Community Health and why it is important. Community Health Improvement Week is hosted by the American Hospital Association. It is a chance to recognize community health professionals and thank them for their work to improve the health of their community. This is especially relevant right now as these professionals are working urgently in response to COVID-19.
What is Community Health?
Community Health refers to a population’s general health and the various ways organizations and individuals work to improve that health for everyone. Community Health looks at:
- Improving the health of individuals
- Preventing diseases
- Reducing health inequalities (also known as disparities)
Community Health Improvements are achieved through addressing the factors that affect the health and well-being of individuals and the population. This includes:
- Social factors
- Behavioral factors
- Environmental factors
- Economic factors
- Medical factors

How You Can Help
During the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, it is very important to work together to protect the health and well-being of everyone in our community – especially those at high risk. We can do this by staying home and getting tested for COVID-19 when we are sick, continuing to wash our hands frequently, staying 6-feet away from others and wearing a face cover when we leave our homes. We can also help our high-risk neighbors and family members by checking-in with them over the phone or with a video chat and by offering to pick-up groceries and other essentials for them. Even during this new phase of “re-opening” in our state and local communities, the risk for severe infection remains high for people over age 65 and with underlying health conditions.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to be a challenging time around the world and here at home. There are many groups and people who are working hard to combat COVID-19. We want to say THANK YOU to the front line and essential workers playing a role in promoting the health and safety of communities everywhere! For more information visit our website at Chapa-De.org.
