The mission of ACTION for Healthy Communities is to identify and address community needs to improve health and well-being in San Luis Obispo County. ACTION is a cooperative, collaborative effort of individual agencies and organizations, public and private, that are committed to improving the overall quality of life in SLO County. Join Fred Munroe as he speaks with members of the ACTION for Healthy Communities steering committee—Jason Wells, associate director of First 5 SLO County and new ACTION chair, and past chair Susan Hughes—as they discuss ACTION’s eighth benchmark study of community issues since 1999.
The most recently released report by ACTION, “Vital Signs—Understanding San Luis Obispo County 2020,” was completed just before the COVID-19 pandemic changed life as we know it, and so will be vital to tracking the county’s recovery after the pandemic eases. Much like the Vital Signs report released in 2010 right after the great recession, the 2020 report provides baseline data for recovery in the areas of Basic Needs, Economy, Health, Natural and Built Environment, Public Safety and Social Environment.
