Lake County Tribal Health Consortium tackles worst health outcomes in the state
HealthyCal.org

In a 2013 study conducted by the University of Wisconsin, Lake County in California was ranked the lowest in the state for “health outcomes.” This means that length of life and quality of life are lowest, at least according to a person’s physical health. The Lake County Tribal Health Consortium, a federally funded and tribally sanctioned organization that serves six Native American tribes and the community as a whole, wants to change this ranking. One way they’re doing this is through innovative programs that look at preventing the causes of illnesses and expand the definition of health beyond just the physical.
