COMMUNITY

Improving the health and wellness of the communities we serve

SEMINARS

The Morongo Basin Healthcare District is pleased to announce a new program to provide health related seminars for the benefit of our residents.

The District's strategic plan repeatedly calls for community education on several initiatives with the goal of helping our residents make healthy lifestyle choices. While all of these seminars are free to participants, registration is required so we have adequate seating and seminar materials available.

SEMINAR OPPORTUNITIES

Morongo Basin Healthcare District is devoted to improving the health and wellness of the communities within our physical geographic boundaries. We focus on providing better access to healthcare services through our Morongo Basin Community Health Center (locations in Yucca Valley and Twentynine Palms) and by partnering with local agencies and organizations who also bring opportunities to the healthcare table.
