La Clínica’s successful chronic disease education and outreach program, Club de Pacientes (Patients’ Club), targets those who suffer from or are at a high risk of developing diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity-related illnesses.
Peer-led fitness and nutrition classes and one-on-one counseling sessions are the hallmark of this life-style management program. Patients are educated and empowered to develop disease-management strategies and adopt healthy lifestyle habits.
As a part of La Clínica’s continuum of care, providers, health educators and medical case managers regularly meet to track participant improvement and adapt treatment to fit their health and wellness needs. Over the last year, 89% of the participating Diabetic patients reduced their A1C levels overall, while 66% reduced their levels by a whole percentage point.
Club de Pacientes meets Saturdays from 9:00am-1:00pm for a weekly group educational and counseling session
- All patients are welcome to join weekly group exercises from 4:45pm to 6:00pm for weekly group exercises (yoga on Thursdays from 5pm-6:00pm)
