The MEND weight management program, named Perder Para Ganar (Lose to Win) was established in 2014 as an intervention to address the disproportionate amount of patients that were obese or morbidly obese at the MEND Medical Clinic. A group of skilled volunteers, from nutritionists to public health experts, developed a program designed to educate and mentor our patients on achieving their weight loss goals.

Our Medical and Eye Care Clinics are powered by volunteers. Family Medicine residents and fellows from Kaiser Permanente and Northridge Medical Center do monthly rotations and several doctors, optometrists, nurse practitioners, and pharmacists generously donate their time and skills each month.
The Medical Clinic is grateful for the assistance of its lead partners Access to Care Collaborative, Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills Residency Program, Dignity Health Northridge Hospital Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, and Providence St. Joseph Medical Center.
