Health education sessions are available to all San Ysidro Health patients ages 0 to 12 years who are diagnosed as overweight or obese and who need help building healthy lifestyle habits into their daily routine.
Sessions are held individually with the patient, a family member, and our Health Educator. Sessions are primarily delivered over the phone, with some in-person sessions available. The outline of the curriculum is shown below, however the Health Educator will adapt to meet the individual needs of each patient and help them to set achievable goals. Through this approach, small lifestyle changes can lead to large health benefits.
For more information or to schedule a session contact Jessica Gonzalez, Health Educator at email@example.com or call her at (619) 662-4100, extension 1507.
Handouts and resources from our health education sessions are also available in our Health Education Virtual Library.
