Community Outreach/Community-Centered Health Homes (CCHH)

El Centro de Corazón hosts their annual Be Healthy Family Expo/Back to School and their East End Holiday events every year. These events are a chance to give back to Houston’s East End. We are grateful for our volunteers and sponsors that make each even possible!

Being an active member of the Houston’s East End community is a big part of what we do at El Centro de Corazón. We work on specific projects that help make a healthier community and also attend various community events, health fairs, and school events throughout the year. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor/volunteer or would like El Centro to attend your next upcoming event, please contact Obed Canjura at ocanjura@elcentrochc.org or 832-494-1772 for more information.

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.
