Community health inequities: Large racial and socioeconomic inequities in the US are reflected and accentuated in the Bay Area, reducing livability in many local communities, with negative consequences for population health and wellbeing. Even while vast resources have been invested to address the problem, deep inequities persist. Transforming health outcomes and wellbeing for the whole community may require more collaborative community-driven initiatives, involving a broad array of stakeholders. We aim to explore the configurations of community stakeholders who can collaborate to design and drive effective solutions.
