What is the Champion Provider Fellowship?

California is experiencing an epidemic of obesity leading to costly chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease, with low-income,underserved communities disproportionately affected. The Champion ProviderFellowship harnesses the passion of healthcare providers to improve the health of their communities beyond the clinic setting. The California Department of Public Health and the University of California, San Francisco launched the program in 2014 to empower, train and support healthcare providers to use their expertise and respected voices to improve the health of communities through local policy, systems and environmental changes. more about the program
