Building Healthy Communities celebrates five-year anniversary

The East Salinas Building Healthy Communities, a 10-year project of the California Endowment, is celebrating its halfway mark with an open house intended to highlight its achievements and present plans for future projects.

The idea behind the state-wide project was to select a handful of low-income California communities that were experiencing significant health disparities. Salinas made it as one of the final 14, and the idea was to invest $10 million and leverage those moneys to bring other resources and make the community healthier.

The event will take place from 10 a.m. to noon on Tuesday, Aug. 23., at the initiative's offices on 606 Williams Road, Salinas.
