Your Health Home in Rural Northeastern California


August 2017

Mountain Valleys Health Centers provided free health screenings for homeless individuals in the Burney area on Saturday, August 12th. Staff of the Burney Health Center donated items and participated in passing out free clothing and blankets. The event ran from 9:00 AM-1:00 PM. Mountain Valleys has worked hard to build bridges with the homeless community over the last several years and this event is just one of the avenues. The goal of the outreach is to help serve a population in the community that can often feel displaced. Mountain Valleys wants to improve the relationship with the population in hopes of better identifying their health needs, and assisting them in achieving their optimum health. Below are pictures of staff who worked at the event. For more good news and to stay connected, you can follow along on our Facebook page.
