A unique partnership of California local public health leaders from CCLHO and CHEAC. The Leadership Project aims to make chronic disease prevention a higher priority for Local Health Departments (LHDs), to strengthen their capacity to address chronic disease, and to promote effective public health practices to prevent it.
