Over 200 Sonoma County Physicians lost their home in the 2017 wildfires.
Some doctors lost their home over night and within hours were working to serve the community during the wildfire disaster. And yet with all those recent personal and collegial hardships... our physicians are not done!
Sonoma County physicians hold strong on their path of health advocacy. This Fall, doctors are at the front of high school classrooms.
CTE Physician Speakers Target All Major Sonoma County High Schools
Physicians visit Sonoma County classrooms and role-model through personal storytelling. Physicians share their personal career path story and why they entered medicine.
In addition, they facilitate discussion activities using Mi Futuro curriculum that introduces healthcare career pathways and promotes Mental Health wellness.
