Descriptions: Chapa-De was founded in 1974 after a study showed American Indians in California suffered from a higher incidence of diabetes, depression, and substance abuse. American Indians were also found to suffer from higher rates of infant mortality and have drastically shorter life expectancy rates. This study also revealed that American Indians had not had regular access to healthcare services, including basic dental care, since the 1950s. These findings compelled a group of local American Indians to open Northern Sierra Indian Health, later to be renamed Chapa-De Indian Health. At that time, Chapa-De had one dental chair in a rented office space and our sole purpose was to provide care to the local American Indians in Placer, Nevada and Sierra counties. Today Chapa-De operates two private, non-profit community health centers and is governed by an American Indian Board of Directors. The Board of Directors includes members of the United Auburn Indian Community, which is Chapa-Des supporting Tribe. Under UAICs authority, Chapa-De contracts with Indian Health Services (IHS) to provide no-cost or low-cost services and medications to verified American Indians and Alaska Natives from federally recognized tribes.

CCMP may choose to align with community groups to change conditions creating poor health, including environmental concerns. CCMP urgently needs VOLUNTEERS: doctors, nurses, dentists, medical and dental specialists, physical therapists, dental hygienists, students and all those with a willingness to learn how to organize to fight the conditions which deny comprehensive medical care to workers and their families here in the Bay Area.

Hours: Sunday 8am - 2pm

Descriptions: Shifa Clinic is a non-profit, student-run medical facility dedicated to serving the diverse, medically uninsured population of the greater Sacramento area. Every Sunday, the clinic provides basic as well as specialized medical services free of charge to patients of many ethnicities and backgrounds. In addition, as a teaching center for medical students and undergraduate volunteers, Shifa Clinic takes an active role in shaping the physicians of the future. Clinic operation is a collaborative effort between undergraduates performing administrative duties, medical students interviewing patients and performing physical exams, and volunteer physicians recommending appropriate treatments regimens and teaching students basic clinical skills.

The concept of a volunteer, free clinic for the uninsured originated in 1994 when two dedicated physicians organized a small clinic in an apartment building donated by the V Street Mosque. They operated this free clinic for many years with minimal facilities. Due to the increasing popularity and demand for this kind of clinic we felt the need of a more organized and regular health service project. In the year 2000, the current Medical Director, Shagufta Yasmeen, M.D., and two medical students, Nasser Abdo and Mahmoud Traina from the University of California, Davis, and the community members (Bashir Choudary, and Dr. Najme Minhaj) launched a new clinic by name of Shifa Community Clinic. The clinic was officially affiliated with UC Davis School of Medicine on June 15, 2005. A three party agreement between Shifa Community Clinic, UC Davis School of Medicine, and the Muslim Mosque Association was finalized.

The program is designed to take a proactive role in response to life-threatening or limiting issues of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, AIDS, teenage pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease. Believing that prevention is the best approach for addressing these community problems, the Medical Society Board chooses to focus on students in the school setting. The program's emphasis is on providing students with the information necessary to make responsible decisions that promote their health now and in the future. This program utilizes physicians, medical school students, and undergraduates to give health-oriented presentations in K-12 schools through-out Yolo, Sacramento, and nearby counties. The level of participation and frequency of visits to the school vary widely and are based on the school's needs and the volunteer's area of expertise. The volunteer may select a grade level and spend several periods with each classroom of students in that grade over the period of the program. There may also be a need for a guest speaker on a specific topic on a one-time basis. Keywords: health, substance abuse, youth, school, students
