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.
La Clínica delivers dental services to more than 29,000 patients annually across three Bay Area counties at our dental clinics, school-based health centers, and several community locations through our Oral Health Initiative (OHI).
Construction of La Clínica’s 26,000 sq. ft. premier health center in Vallejo began in December, two blocks away from the current Vallejo Medical.
