Madre, ¿Te estás cuidando?
En Mayo 13, 2021 San Ysidro Health continuó celebrando a las mamás en el Día de las Madres recalcando la importancia de volver a participar en las evaluaciones de salud de la mujer, los exámenes anuales y la seguridad de las visitas a la clínica, mientras nos recuperamos de esta pandemia. Desde el inicio de la pandemia, muchas mujeres no han podido acceder a servicios apropiados y adecuados de atención médica mientras que experimentaban factores de estrés financiero que, para algunas, tenían resultados emocionales y de salud deficientes.
Esta asociación unida por El Consejo Nacional sobre el Envejecimiento (NCOA) y Latinos para una Jubilación Segura (LSR) trajo recursos para ayudar a las familias a solicitar beneficios de ahorro de dinero a través de la Herramienta de Verificación de Beneficios o Benefits Check-up Tool© para acceder a recursos que les ayudarán a vivir con dignidad, propósito y seguridad.
Este esfuerzo fue apoyado en parte por la subvención 90MINC0001-01-00 de la Administración para la Vida Comunitaria de EE. UU., Departamento de Salud y Servicios Humanos. Los puntos de vista u opiniones no representan necesariamente la política oficial de ACL.
