Issues Addressed

We do much more than just encouraging your child to eat broccoli.

At Kaiser Permanente when we talk about total health, we are definitely talking about eating healthier – including eating your broccoli. But it’s also much more than that. Total health is about the mind, body and spirit – for the individual and their community. Our programs touch on some critical issues from bullying to puberty and grief to HIV prevention. We do this by working with teams of health professionals, educators, parents and community advisory groups who, as experts in their fields, help us create and update our programs that meet the needs of the entire community.
