Comprehensive Community Health Centers (CCHC) is pleased to announce it has received a $5000 sponsorship from the LA Care Health Plan Regional Community Advisory Communities (RCAC) Region 4. CCHC received this support through LA Care Health Plan’s RCAC Community Partnership Work Plan with this year’s focus on improving women’s health.
In collaboration with L.A. Care Health Plan and City of Glendale Community Services and Parks, CCHC is celebrating National Health Center Week by hosting its 3rd Annual Back to School Health & Wellness Event. At the event, which will take place August 18th, 2018 in Glendale, CA, CCHC will be providing children of the community and their entire family with free health screenings, fun games, activities, and much more. Community organizations will be in attendance providing the community with helpful resources and educational materials.
This year CCHC’s goal is to provide 1000 new backpacks equipped with school supplies to children entering Kindergarten to 12th grade. This will help ensure that children are ready and well prepared for the upcoming school year. It is also a great opportunity to make sure families are receiving their preventative care screenings, including dental and vision.
Additionally, with the support of L.A. Care Health Plan, CCHC is pleased to have the opportunity to provide education and resources surrounding Women’s Health. Chronic pain management, reproductive health, mental health, and family planning resources will be available to the participants at the event. Additionally, our providers will be onsite facilitating dental and vision screenings and our staff is available to schedule immediate appointments to see one of our providers at any of our 5 clinics.
The free event is scheduled to take place on Saturday, August 18th from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Pacific Park Community Center located at 501 S. Pacific Ave. Glendale, CA 91204.
