Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic  

In the midst of COVID-19, it might seem hard to receive the care and support you are normally accustomed to. We understand. We want you to know that Chapa-De is here for you! We want our patients to know that we are doing our best to create a sense of normalcy during an abnormal time and that includes continuing to offer many of our groups and classes.

Focusing on your health and making healthy lifestyle choices is still important. Our team is bringing groups together through group phone calls and video meetings so you can continue to access the information and support you need while also maintaining distance from others. Home may not be a place you normally associate with group learning and interaction but now it can be!

New Diabetes Prevention Program Series!

Starting on July 9th, we will kick-off a new series of our Diabetes Prevention Program. This is a free year-long program for patients with pre-diabetes. Participants will learn about healthy eating, weight loss, physical activity and stress management in a non-judgmental and supportive setting. Patients come together with others who are facing the same challenges to receive support and guidance as they make healthy lifestyle changes that last.

Patients who have completed the Diabetes Prevention Program say their lives are happier now that they’ve committed to making themselves and their health a priority. They also enjoy sharing what they’ve learned with their family and loved ones.

  • Class Details:
    • 22 interactive sessions throughout the year facilitated by our Nutrition Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer
