Coachella Valley Health Info Place
A collective fund was established to develop and manage a dynamic and comprehensive Coachella Valley Health Info Place. This portal was presented as a vehicle to implement the robust and visible media campaigns of three Clinton Health Matters Initiative- Coachella Valley Blueprint Bold Steps which addressed healthy eating and food quality; physical activity; and sexual health.
District Funds committed to date:
Desert Healthcare Foundation ($300,000 over 3 years)
Additional Collective Fund support to date:
Mayor Steve Pougnet, Palm Springs – Mayor’s Health and Wellness Festival ($300,000 over 3 years)
At the DHCD Board meeting in November 2013, the Board voted to support the development of a community health portal through its partnership with Mayor Pougnet. This is a three-year funding commitment. The collective fund currently has $600,000 restricted to the development and implementation of a community health portal.
The result was CVHIP.com.
