Places where we live, work, play and go to school profoundly shape our health — and places aren’t created equal. Some are filled with amenities while others lack basic infrastructure. Get Healthy San Mateo County (GHSMC) works with local planners and other city staff, policy-makers, and community leaders to build health into our communities, to make the healthy choice the easy choice for everyone in San Mateo County. Yet there is still more work to be done! Connect with us and our partners throughout San Mateo County to help build healthy, equitable communities.
