Kaiser Permanente Recognizes the Good Works of Eight Santa Clarita Valley Nonprofit Organizations with more than $62,000 in Grant Funds
Kaiser Permanente is proud to announce eight Santa Clarita Valley nonprofit organizations have been awarded more than $62,000 in community benefit funding due to their dedication to improving health and wellness locally.
For more than half a century, Kaiser Permanente has demonstrated a commitment to enhancing the health of local communities. One of the ways Kaiser Permanente fulfills this social mission is by providing financial support for local nonprofit health and human service organizations, with an emphasis on under-served populations.
Kaiser Permanente’s Community Benefit Grants Program awards grants to organizations committed to early detection and treatment of chronic diseases, improving physical and nutritional health in local communities, and expanding access to care for lower-income and uninsured individuals. Read about the eight community agencies receiving funds this year here.
Kaiser Permanente will open all seasonal flu clinics throughout Southern California on Saturday, Sept. 22, and urges all members to get no-cost vaccinations early. To provide more convenient access to the influenza (flu) vaccine, Kaiser Permanente will offer members additional vaccination locations beyond their regular physicians’ offices, including drive-up flu clinics, pharmacies and walk-in flu clinics.
The schedule for Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center area flu clinics, including medical offices in North Hollywood, Mission Hills, Santa Clarita, and Panorama City is available here.
September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, and ovarian cancer ranks fifth in cancer deaths among women according to the American Cancer Society.
Each year, approximately 22,240 women will receive a new diagnosis of ovarian cancer, and approximately 14,070 women will die from ovarian cancer.
Sylvia Fowler, MD, Chief of Oncology/Hematology from Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center wants you to know the possible signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer:
“Ovarian cancer happens when cells that are not normal grow in one or both of your ovaries. Treatment is most successful when cancer is found early, but often times we find this cancer after it has spread throughout the body. It is very important to be aware of any changes with your body and see your doctor if symptoms occur daily for 2 to 3 weeks,” says Dr. Fowler.
Knowing the following signs and symptoms can help early detection. Symptoms, when occurring almost daily for 2 to 3 weeks, may include:
- Recent, frequent bloating
- Pain in the belly or pelvis
- Trouble eating, or feeling full quickly
- Urinary problems, such as an urgent need to urinate or urinating more often than usual
Risk factors include:
- Getting older
- Being overweight or obese
- Having children later or never having a full-term pregnancy
- Using fertility treatment
- A family history of ovarian, breast, or colorectal cancer
