The California Endowment’s Tony Iton joins us as part of our First Person series on local leaders and innovators. We’ll talk about the foundation’s Building Healthy Communities program, which has allocated $1 billion in California to transform communities with high health inequities. We’ll also hear how a zip code can impact a person’s health more than their genetic code.

Tony Iton, senior vice president of healthy communities, The California Endowment; former director, Alameda County Health Department.
