Making an Impact in Central Valley

Diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity are chronic conditions that make heart attacks and strokes more likely. In order to support the community with additional  resources to prevent these chronic diseases, the American Heart Association, with support from Dignity Health Bakersfield, held a training opportunity for local community health workers as part of their annual Go Red Por Tu Corazon event.
