Community Centered Health Homes (CCHH)

Jorge Olvera, CCHH Manager at The Baylor College of Medicine Biotech Academy speaking to students about the most prevalent health issues in Houston’s East End.

El Centro de Corazón is implementing CCHH community prevention efforts at its Dunn and Magnolia Health Centers, which are located in Magnolia Park in East Houston. With a focus on reducing obesity, El Centro is working to create greater opportunities for healthy eating and active living. By engaging community partners, El Centro is coordinating programming, advocacy, and actions to improve health at the community level. Key Partners include the Houston Health Department, local schools and community leaders. Through patient and community inquiry, El Centro has learned about community factors affecting patient’s health and is utilizing this knowledge to expand our efforts and improve health outcomes. El Centro is implementing strategies that complement its clinical care, such as increasing access to healthy foods, creating coordinated school health programs, and educating the community about healthy weight and nutrition.
