We want to empower all community members to enjoy the healthiest lifestyle possible. We are dedicated to providing health and outreach services to meet the needs of our community.
Health Counseling Schedule
Our department provides free health screening, counseling, education and referrals.
Our staff is also active all year participating in community, faith organization, and school health fairs and events, working with many community-based organizations, health clinics and schools. These interactions inform the hospital about community health needs and allow us to respond with appropriate services.
For more information call Huntington Hospital Community Outreach at (626) 397-3376.
Our registered nurses work in partnership with other community agencies to determine the community’s needs and what can be done to help meet those needs. Free health counseling and screenings for diabetes and hypertension are provided at a variety of community sites every month.
Throughout the year we participate in health fairs, providing free health education for disease prevention and management, and maintaining a healthful lifestyle. We also hold over 30 free annual flu shot clinics throughout the community – providing an average of 2,500 flu shots annually.
Fentanyl Education Program
In response to the national fentanyl poisoning crisis, Huntington Health launched a free fentanyl education program for the community. Huntington-affiliated emergency department physician Ted Peck, MD, and clinical pharmacist specialist Evan Adintori, PharmD, BCPS, and its community outreach team are spearheading the program, which offers free seminars to parents at local schools, and to the public at community centers and libraries.
The seminars cover the dangers of fentanyl, the pervasiveness of the drug in the community and what to do if someone overdoses. They also provide information about Narcan, a nasal spray used to reverse or reduce the effects of opioids. Training for administering Narcan for a fentanyl poisoning is offered as well.
If you are interested in hosting this seminar for your organization or school, please email: CommunityOutreach@HuntingtonHospital.com
Flu Shot Clinic
During flu season we help Pasadena residents and our neighbors throughout the San Gabriel Valley and surrounding communities take steps to guard against the flu.
