Mission Statement

Communities & Health Professionals Together (CHPT) strives to give every individual a healthy present and future by teaching healthcare professionals, both in training and in practice, how to make a difference through active community partnerships.

Description

Founded in 1999, Communities and Health Professionals Together (CHPT) began as an informal service-learning partnership between UC Davis’ Pediatric Residency Program and several local community based organizations. The program has quickly grown into a multifaceted and multidisciplinary collaboration; fostering medical outreach, child advocacy, and community service in young physicians.

CHPT aims to improve child health outcomes throughout the Sacramento region by 1) increasing resident physicians’ understanding of the social determinants of health 2) teaching them to identify child health advocacy opportunities outside of the clinical setting and 3) engaging them in reciprocal partnerships with local organizations to address a specific child health concern through the application of Asset Based Community Development principles. These aims are accomplished over three years of intensive training.
