CHEAC Launches Public Health Heroes Campaign

This week, the County Health Executives Association of California (CHEAC) launched “Public Health Heroes for Recovery,” a campaign to honor local leaders across sectors who are partnering with public health officials to save lives and protect their communities from COVID-19. Californians from business and labor, local community, faith and non-profit organizations, and the arts are supporting local public health officials’ efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Public health heroes are being featured on CHEAC’s Twitter account (@CHEAC) with stories of local heroes’ contributions to the health of their communities. Recognizing that California’s communities of color have suffered illness and death from the virus in disproportionate numbers, CHEAC will recognize public health heroes whose deep connections in underserved communities are vital to public health.
