2nd Annual Back to School Wellness Event

CCHC is a comprehensive medical home serving various communities within the greater Los Angeles area. We offer a variety of services to the community; however CCHC is also committed to providing families in our community with essential resources that benefit the overall wellness of individuals.

On Saturday, August 12, 2017, CCHC Hosted its 2nd Annual Back to School Wellness Event. To ensure students are going back to school with the tools and resources required, we provided 635 backpacks filled with school supplies to the children in attendance. We were pleased to have enjoyed the day with over 900 members from the community.

Thanks to our community partners, sponsors and the communities we serve. We are extremely grateful for your support.

Health Screenings!

Aligned with our mission of ensuring the health and wellness of each individual we serve, over 300 children and adults in attendance received free health screenings at the event. With the support of our partners from the Glendale Community College Nursing program we were able to provide vision and dental screenings to the participants.

FUN, FUN, FUN!!!

Families also had an opportunity to receive health education materials and community resources, engage in fun games and activities, and enjoying the free food and music. Children in attendance were able to participate in various activities such as: rock climbing, face painting, and arts and crafts. Participants were also able to enjoy a soccer shoot out activity provided by our partners at Blue Shield of California. By collaborating with various organizations, our events continue to grow and support the needs of the children, adults, and families in our community. We aim to provide a fun, informative, and resourceful event for everyone and we look forward to doing so every year.
