Rural Association of Northern California Health Officers (RANCHO)
The Rural Association of Northern California Health Officers (RANCHO) is a regional network of county health officers in northern California. RANCHO was formed in the spring of 2020 in response to COVID-19. Other parts of the state have longstanding regional health official associations. These networks address current and emerging health issues by leveraging expertise and resources of local health departments to advance regional public health and promote communication and collaboration among neighboring counties.
