A Message from our President & CEO

The San Benito Health Foundation wishes to express our solidarity to the members of our community, staff and families. As we finding new ways to be together and care of one another, we will be here offer support and comfort to our community. While we continue moving through this global pandemic together, emotional health is very important: it is often during these times that many of us feel fear, stress and panic.

We know you are being socially responsible by staying at home. But please – check on your family and friends when you can, and do it virtually. Remember to reach out especially to our elders and children, who may need more emotional support during these trying times.

We want you to know that our team here at The San Benito Health Foundation is continuing to work through the many challenges brought on by this pandemic, and are working quickly to ensure we stay connected to you and your families. We have created portals for you to communicate and consult with our doctors, introducing telemedicine visits via teleconferencing for our established patients. We’ve been fortunate to utilize such platforms such as FaceTime, Google Duo, Skype, WhatsApp and Zoom to help connect, and are continuing to offer assistance with the set up and use of these tools for those who may need the additional support. If you need help connecting with these tools, please contact us and we will try our best to help assist you in hopes it helps you feel more connected to us. If you are technically gifted, please consider contacting family and fellow community members who may be in need of your assistance and support in learning how to use these tools.

We are here to help, and together, we will find a new normal for our community.

We are here for you.

Stay home if you can – take care and be well.

Rosa Vivian Fernández Badillo, MPH, FACHE, CEC
President & CEO

Teaching Garden:

A new garden marks the beginning of spring here at San Benito Health Foundation and complements our plans for outdoor nutrition education this summer. Whether teaching preschool-aged WIC participants to identify the plants they eat, sampling healthy recipes with our chronic patients, or engaging children during our summer feeding program, the garden is a great adjunct to San Benito Health Foundation’s initiatives for comprehensive health and wellness.
