La Familia Clinic provides monthly "Platicas" for their patients and the general public each second Thursday of every month at 2:00pm in the auditorium.  The platicas are fun and educational, providing lessons on proper nutrition and exercise while including a few games of "loteria" and healthy snacks.  These sessions provide a distraction for La Familia clients and a time for sharing ideas, feelings, and even healthy recipes.  The staff discusses the symptoms of Diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure as well as the complications these chronic diseases may lead to and how to avoid them with a change in lifestyle.
