Sophia Bucheli is a La Clínica patient and board member. To celebrate her birthday Sophia created a Facebook Fundraiser. She not only met her final donation goal, she shattered it. In the end, Sophia raised more than three times her initial goal.
Mauricio Lask is Lead Behavioral Medicine Specialist. Mauricio collaborates with primary care providers on patient care. At the La Clínica clinics, the medical providers screen patients in primary care and refer them to a behavioral health clinician to be seen that same day. This reduces a lot of the hurdles to care.
To respond to the rising issue of poor nutrition and eating, La Clínica created the Healthy Food, Healthy Families Program that provides leadership training to community members who are dedicated to making meaningful change. These Healthy Food Champions develop and implement projects focused on healthy eating and addressing food insecurity in their communities in ways that are culturally and linguistically appropriate.
