Capital Area Health Alliance

The Capital Area Health Alliance (CAHA) is a regional hub for organizations with interest in health and health care. Since its inception, CAHA has convened community conversations to understand and address healthcare system trends, regional needs and opportunities for improvement. The Alliance provides an inclusive platform on which competing organizations and multiple sectors can collaborate. Through its committees, which bring together the expertise and resources of multiple organizations in these sectors, CAHA connects providers engaged in the work of health care with organizations working at the community level to support innovative approaches to improve the health of the entire community and to bring resources and educational opportunities to employers, businesses and area residents.


2017 Annual Meeting

The Capital Area Health Alliance hosted its Annual Meeting and 24th Anniversary Event on March 23, 8:30 – 11:30 am, Eagle Eye Golf Club, 15500 Chandler Rd, Bath Twp.  The morning’s agenda included:

  • Breakfast: Enjoy a delicious breakfast and connect with colleagues.
  • Committee Showcase:  Learn about the work of the Alliance that is accomplished through its committees and find ways to get involved.
  • Keynote Speaker: Marcella Wilson, PhD, Transition to Success (TTS).  TTS is a standard of care to treat the condition of poverty, addressing social determinants of health by coordinating across healthcare, human service, government, faith-based and education. It is based on a continuous quality improvement model with uniform standards of practice, creating consistency in care, measurement and evaluation.
  • Interactive Dialogue: Lend your voice to developing the next steps to be taken based on the presentation.

Immediately following the event was a book-signing for Dr. Wilson’s new book Diagnosis: Poverty. There was NO CHARGE to attend this event.
