ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Knowledge for life
The Bay Area Community Health Advisory Council (BACHAC) is at the forefront of the fight to erase health disparities across generations and diverse communities. Focusing on African American, Latino, and Pacific Islander communities throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, BACHAC has grown grassroots programming for 25 years that reaches more than 20,000 people annually. Our programs communicate a positive message of healthy living and good nutrition while highlighting the value of physical fitness.
Since our founding in 1995, BACHAC has worked with corporations, mid- and small sized companies, community-based organizations, nonprofit health organizations, governmental agencies, health educators, institutions of higher learning, and the faith community to create a village united around a common goal: increasing awareness of and reducing the debilitating effects of health concerns that disproportionately affect communities of color.
The BACHAC story is one of growth, outreach and success. Started as a grassroots volunteer effort, we have a long record of accomplishments. Today, we are recognized as a go-to resource for individuals, families, medical practitioners and others in the Bay Area and a model for improving health throughout the United States.
BACHAC is dedicated to eliminating health disparities across generations and diverse communities.
