Gender Hormone Clinic

Gender Hormone Clinic in partnership with the Sacramento Gender Health Center. We aim to serve to the trans/gender non-conforming population in the greater Northern California region through coordination of gender-affirming hormone care and connection to community resources.

Sacramento is becoming a hub for gender-affirming care through the work of the Gender Health Center's Hormone Clinic in affiliation with the UC Davis School of Medicine. The free/donation-based clinic helps transgender and gender non-conforming people from across Northern California access hormone therapy and connect with resources. The clinic is run by medical students under the supervision of licensed family practitioners and with the help of undergraduate volunteers.

 

Imani Clinic

Imani is a Swahili word meaning faith and it symbolizes the hope students wish to foster within the African-American community. The clinic was established in the Oak Park neighborhood of Sacramento in 1994 after students became concerned about the staggering and persistent morbidity and mortality rates among African-Americans from hypertension, heart disease, cancer and inadequate prenatal care.

Sharing space in a small building with Sacramento’s Harm Reduction Services, the Joan Viteri clinic provides unbiased health care to intravenous drug users, sex workers and their families. The clinic works closely with Harm Reduction Services to emphasize prevention and education about infectious diseases and HIV testing and to provide drug-related medical and social referrals.

 

The Knights Landing One Health Center, Medical Clinic aims to provide linguistically competent and culturally humble healthcare services to the rural underserved in the Knights Landing area. We seek to fill the gap in primary care services and health education, with particular emphasis on women, adolescents, and farm workers. We are striving to develop a One Health model that links human, animal, and environmental health.

Recognizing Illnesses Very Early and Responding

RIVER is a mobile pediatric clinic providing free primary care and mental health services to the underserved population in Sacramento.  Bringing care directly to communities in need with school-based clinics will close a major gap in the care network of these children.   RIVER will address acute illness and injury, chronic illness monitoring and health supervision, and will provide screening for Adverse Childhood Experiences.  A seamless referral system for specialized care and mental health services through our affiliation with the Department of Pediatrics and the UC Davis Children’s Hospital will promote sustainability by connecting disenfranchised families to pediatric medical homes, mental health providers, and resources in the community and investing in coordinated prevention services.

Clinica Tepati

Clinica Tepati began in 1974, with a focus on serving downtown Sacramento's underserved and undocumented Latino population. Operating out of space provided by WellSpace Health, Clinica Tepati's Spanish interpretation services enable volunteers to communicate effectively, and provide culturally-sensitive care to more than 1,000 patients each year.  Our clinic also provides diabetes education, exercise programs, and legal and specialty services for our patient populations.

 

Willow Clinic

Working out of the Salvation Army facility near downtown Sacramento, the clinic provides health care screening and services to a large, homeless population. The clinic's dedication to the homeless prompted the Salvation Army to include the clinic in its renovation plans, setting aside two separate rooms solely for patient care and clinical operations.
