Patient Education

In light of the recommendations concerning social distancing and COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending all in-person patient education classes.

We encourage our patients to take an active role in managing their health. Education helps patients feel confident about what they are experiencing and also helps them ask the right questions of their medical providers and care team.
To schedule an appointment with your Community Health Centers of Lane County medical provider, please call: 541-682-3550.
