The ACTIVATE Program (Accountability, Coordination, and Technology In the Valley to Achieve Transformation and Equity) was launched to rapidly design and deploy an innovative, evidence-based, sustainable telehealth program that will benefit vulnerable populations in rural and agricultural communities, and that can be easily replicated and scaled across California and the US.
