The San Pablo Area Revitalization Collaborative of Oakland is among seven winners nationwide to receive $250,000 over two years to promote economic development and reduce health disparities in West Oakland.

“Sutter Health is part of a network of pioneers in collaborative community health,” says Mindy Landmark, Sutter Health Bay Area regional lead for community benefit and community health improvement. “Together, we are changing health care.”

Led by the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation, Alameda County Public Health Department and Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, the funds will be used to strengthen existing partnerships, jump-start more advanced health data and analytics initiatives and expand their impact.

BUILD Health Challenge was founded by The Advisory Board Company, the de Beaumont Foundation, the Colorado Health Foundation, The Kresge Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to encourage community partnerships among local non-profit organizations, hospitals and health systems, and health departments to improve the health and well-being of their residents.

The BUILD Health Challenge will provide technical assistance for awardees in policy development, monitoring and evaluation.
