We are Connecting Communities
In addition to broadening our cultural activities, we plan on expanding our services to include cultural competence, quality healthcare education, enrollment, screening, and prevention education. Specific services will include providing diabetes self management and support groups in Spanish, offering lessons on how to prepare healthy, low-carbohydrate meals, and English as a second language classes to low income individuals and their families. Each year we host a Bi-National Heal Fair in Corning and Cinco de Mayo celebration at the Tehama County fairgrounds.
