Community Benefit

Adventist Health’s mission statement of Living God’s love by inspiring health, wholeness and hope is coupled with a vision to transform the health experience of our communities through collaborative programs, community investments and community outreach. We are inspired by the healing ministry as represented by the life of Jesus Christ and believe we are called to live out our mission intentionally in the communities we serve. In the small towns, suburbs and inner cities we serve, we continue our journey to provide quality healthcare until every person made in God’s image has experienced the best health today, hope for tomorrow, and God’s love that endures forever.

In 2017, Adventist Health Howard Memorial partnered with the Willits Senior Center to start the "Lunch and Learn" program. The program provides healthy meals to seniors and the community while educating them about health topics and issues presented by a physician or health expert.

For our pilot year, we did two Lunch and Learn events: In one, we discussed fall prevention, presented by a physical therapist; In the second, we talked about managing medications, presented by our pharmacist. We provided meals and education to 200 seniors and community members.
