San Ysidro Health offers a variety of Free Health Education resources to support patients and communities in understanding their health care advice, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and and learning how to manage their health conditions, including weight management, obesity, hypertension, prediabetes and diabetes type 2.
The Telehealth – Health Education Wellness Program facilitates the delivery of Health Education sessions for patients who are not able to attend in-person sessions with a Health Educator by delivering sessions over the phone and using our Health Education Virtual Library.

Health Education materials are available to promote and support healthy lifestyle changes for patients and communities.
