In 2014, the Health Funders Partnership of Orange County launched a unique partnership with the Coalition of Orange County Community Health Centers and the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine and its Susan Samueli Center for Integrative Medicine to transform Orange County’s health care safety net to a system that is focused on creating health and wellness for individuals, families and communities with the ultimate goal of improving population health and wellness focused on its community health centers and clinics.
