If you have questions about a health condition or medical procedure, you can research answers on your own from a wide range of sources. But it may be difficult to tell if the information is accurate and reflects the latest in medical knowledge.
Sutter Gould Medical Foundation can help. We offer interactive classes, lectures and workshops led by experts who share news and information in a way that’s easy to understand. We also have many in-depth programs on topics including smoking cessation, heart health, diabetes management, lung disease management and weight loss.
Our support groups provide emotional encouragement and guidance from others in similar situations. We host many different groups, including those for people with a serious illness, caregivers, and children and teens dealing with grief, loss or their own medical diagnosis.
At the Maino Community Health Library, patient-focused staff can answer your questions and guide you to reliable medical information. Classes and individual appointments are open to the community and available at no cost. You will need a doctor's referral and you must preregister.
