Release date: May 28, 2024



Who we are

CHOICE (Community Health Organization Improving Care and Equity) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting health equity, and improving healthcare access, outcomes, and systems of care. We serve everyone in the Central Western Washington region, which is home to unique and diverse communities in the jurisdictions of Thurston, Mason, Lewis, Cowlitz, Pacific, Grays Harbor, and Wahkiakum counties and the sovereign nations of the Chehalis, Chinook, Cowlitz, Nisqually, Quinault, Shoalwater Bay, Skokomish, and Squaxin Island Tribes.

The safety, health, and well-being of our region is central to the work we do (and we love what we do!).

CHOICE is also the Accountable Community of Health (ACH) serving the central western Washington region. ACHs work with their communities on health care and social needs-related projects and activities. Learn more about ACHs.

What we do

In addition to improving health access and outcomes across the region, we advocate for and support local solutions to local challenges.

Part of these efforts include:

  • Blue Zones Activate: A community-led initiative focused on improving overall well-being and longevity by implementing evidence-based strategies derived from the Blue Zones approach. CHOICE funded the implementation of this project in Mason, Lewis, and Grays Harbor counties in 2023. Learn more about Blue Zones Activate.

  • Health Equity Cohort: A group convened by CHOICE comprised of key stakeholders and community leaders working collaboratively to address health equity issues, improve health outcomes in the region, and inform recommendations for a regional health equity improvement plan. The cohort will conduct their work from June – December 2024. Learn more about the Cohort.



CHOICE seeks proposals from qualified creative agencies within central western Washington to produce a comprehensive video storytelling project. This project aims to inspire and engage community members by showcasing the impact of Blue Zones Activate and fostering a sense of connection that contributes to improved health outcomes. Additionally, the project includes capturing the efforts of the Health Equity Cohort and planning future storytelling opportunities.


The selected agency will be responsible for the following:

  • Consultation: Collaborate with CHOICE to develop storyboards and scripts aligning with the theme, "connection creates health."

  • Messaging strategies: Provide expertise in crafting messages that resonate with the target audience and promote community engagement.

  • Editing: Produce high-quality video content, incorporating interviews, testimonials, and relevant footage.

  • Publishing: Assist in the promotion of the video through appropriate channels to maximize reach and impact.

  • Future expansion: Offer insights and recommendations for expanding the storytelling project to include additional community-based efforts, such as community-based care coordination.


The agency will deliver the following:

  • Blue Zones video: A compelling 2-3 minute video highlighting the impact of Blue Zones Activate in Grays Harbor, Lewis, and Mason counties. Any and all footage captured and collected related to the video including raw, edited, and final files. A suite of photos and shorter .10 and .20 second clips to be used for varying promotional strategies.
