Community Transformation: North Sound Accountable Community of Health’s Journey

The North Sound region of Washington State includes urban and rural areas, islands and mountains. More than one million people live in the region’s five counties and eight Tribal Nations. Dedicated systems stewards, or change-makers, from across the region work together to increase equitable well-being. Five years ago, these leaders created a pathway for transformative change, launching the state’s first Accountable Community of Health (ACH).
