To our health

For over a century, SLO County nonprofits and governmental agencies have worked together to make our community as healthy as possible. From Nipomo to San Miguel and beyond, we strive to create safe and healthy places to live, work, learn and play. This site provides key data and information about these opportunities for health, and the challenges we can work together to overcome.


DATA Highlights

The power of data to guide community health improvement is immense. Accurate, relevant information helps us determine how to most effectively direct limited resources and where to find assets we can leverage to make positive change. Take a look at some of this data below.
