Outreach Services

The ALTURA outreach team works closely with families, individuals, and the community to promote health and provide education and assessments to the central valley population.

What We Do

Outreach is intended to increase access to primary and preventative healthcare and improve the health status of the underserved population throughout Tulare, King, and Kern counties. These events not only support opportunities to raise awareness on access to affordable healthcare but also offer educational opportunities on crucial health topics impacting our communities.

Health Education

The purpose of the Health Education & Prevention Department is to optimize the health and well-being of our patients and our community. We are a health education department focused on providing preventative educational
materials and promoting healthy lifestyles. 

Walk With A Doc

According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact; easier on the joints than running. It is safe – with a doctor’s okay – for people with orthopedic ailments, heart conditions, and those who are more than 20% overweight. In addition, research has shown that you could gain two hours of life for each hour of regular exercise! That quick stroll around the block seems a little more worthwhile now, doesn’t it?

Walk with a Doc is a walking program for everyone interested in taking steps for a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start your weekend than on your feet making strides to help your heart and improving your general health to live longer!

While you walk at your own pace, you’ll have the opportunity to have questions answered by local physicians.

This program was started in Columbus, OH in April of 2005 by Dr. David Sabgir and has now expanded throughout the country. You don’t need any special gear and there are no special rules. Just put on a pair of comfortable shoes and walk alone, with friends, a partner or family or with a group. It’s a personal preference.
