Description
The collection documents the activities of the Health Care Council (HCC) of Orange County, California, a coalition of health-related organizations that works to improve access to healthcare services for all Orange County residents. Because HCC staff members serve as advocates and advisors for many health-related and community services task forces and committees, the collection contains materials on a wide spectrum of community organizations and concerns in Orange County.
Background
The Health Care Council (HCC) of Orange County, California is a coalition of over one hundred health-related organizations that work to strengthen families, protect children, preserve the independence of older adults, treat the uninsured and under-insured working poor, prevent substance abuse, ease the suffering of the ill, and improve access to healthcare services for all Orange County residents. HCC's definition of "health" includes health education, disease prevention, medical treatment and rehabilitation, and also considers socioeconomic factors such as poverty, employment, transportation, housing, and literacy.
