Health Workshops

Overall Goal

To improve the health of the Hispanic community in Clatsop, Columbia, and Tillamook County, through educational workshops, encouraging healthy behaviors, and providing direct services.

Organization Activity

In the past, we have collaborated with Providence Seaside Hospital and assisted with referrals to their emergency dental van program three times a year; typically the month of March, August, and October. Over the years we have facilitated referrals for dozens of families. To learn more about the Dental Van service or schedule an appointment, please contact Providence Seaside Hospital at (503) 717-7000 and ask for Mackenna Taylor,

Through our advisory committee (La Voz de la Comunidad) we receive guidance on the types health workshops and events needed in the community. We have offered cancer awareness workshops and have held women’s health, men’s health and fitness education events. We also work closely with local partners to promote community health fairs and fun and healthy activities like runs and canoeing among the Hispanic community. We believe that by focusing on prevention efforts, we can achieve greater impact and optimal health.
