The mission of Bayanihan Clinic is to provide primary care and preventative health services to the diverse, underserved communities of the Greater Sacramento area, including Filipino veterans and immigrants.
- Preventative Services: A patient generally comes to clinic with a particular health concern, and this concern (the patient's chief complaint) is addressed at the clinic. Includes flu shots, cholesterol counts, screening for select conditions, etc. Also includes physicals which serve to address any health issues discovered during the physical.
- Referrals: Because the clinic is able to only provide limited health care delivery, patients with more serious complications will be referred to specialists in the area.
- Social Services: During an examination, a student working in the clinic may learn of a social issue that may need to be addressed.
- Health Education & Counseling: The public health component of the clinic. Includes a workshop on a particular health issue, posters placed throughout the clinic, brochures distributed to patients, and health information available in the waiting room. Patients with diabetes or prediabetic are highly encouraged by the physician to receive counseling services from the Diabetes Empowerment Program.
