December Patient Newsletter

What is World AIDS Day?

World AIDS Day (December 1st) is a time to remember those we’ve lost to HIV/AIDS, celebrate our successes in saving and improving the lives of people living with HIV, and renew our commitment to ending the HIV epidemic in the United States and around the world. This year we would like to emphasize the importance of strong partnerships with communities and of delivering person-centered, stigma-free HIV prevention, treatment, and care services. 

HIV-Early Intervention Services at SCHC

Our Early Intervention Services (EIS) Program connects people living with HIV/AIDS to medical care. The Ryan White Part C grant provides funding for those who do not have health insurance, have insufficient insurance, or limited financial resources. Services include:

  • HIV/AIDS counseling 
  • Risk reduction counseling 
  • Case management 
  • Patient education 
  • Rapid HIV testing 
  • PrEP and PEP navigation services
  • Assistance with referrals to dental, nutrition, and mental health programs. 
  • And much more! 

To learn more give us a call at (530) 246-5852. 

Masks Required at all SCHC Sites

Due to rising COVID-19 infections in our community, wearing a mask is mandatory at all SCHC sites. 

We ask that all patients visiting our centers bring a mask along with them. If you do not have a mask, the screeners at our front doors will provide you with one. This is done for the safety of all of our patients and staff. As recommended by the CDC, children under two years old and those who have trouble breathing do not need to wear a mask. 

Are you concerned about coming in to our center for an appointment?

Consider scheduling a televisit so that you can see your clinician from the comfort of your home. A televisit is a visit that takes place over a cellular or internet connection through a computer, tablet, or cell phone. This means you will be able to see and talk with your provider in real-time, instead of coming down to our center for an in-person office visit. 

There are so many benefits to this option which include: 

  • No travel
  • No need to take time off from work
  • No time in the waiting room
  • Less chance of catching an illness 

Appointments can be made by calling (530) 246-5710. When you call, ask about televisit options!
