Research and Education Outreach Programs

Play for Thought

Play for Thought is a committee that organizes a series of educational events for children which aim to instill the idea of a healthy lifestyle through hands-on activities. We currently present at the Yolo County Library and Friends of the Davis Library.  

Patient Advocate Committee

In collaboration with the Vietnamese School of Mary Help of Christians Center and Lac Hong Vietnamese School, interns will educate high school students about prevalent health issues in the Vietnamese community. Interns will also help students learn new Vietnamese words relating to the topic and provide translation practices. 

Health Resources Committee

A committee focused on developing health and educational resources that are easily accessible and understandable for patients to improve their awareness of prevalent health issues and personal health. We will create online and physical resources such as infographics and brochures to distribute to families and in-clinic patients.
