Empowering Health Through Education At Casa

At Casa El Buen Samaritano, education is not just a service; it's a unique lifeline for the community's well-being. Even when school is out for the summer, the learning never stops here! Casa proudly offers a variety of monthly educational classes, each with a unique approach and content, covering essential topics crucial for managing health effectively.



Casa offers comprehensive educational sessions that include monthly nutrition classes featuring engaging PowerPoint presentations and visual aids, all delivered in Spanish to enhance accessibility. In collaboration with Baylor College of Medicine, Casa conducts sessions on the importance of colon cancer screenings, providing essential insights for timely prevention. Additionally, wellness classes led by a UTMB occupational therapy student cover various aspects of well-being, using interactive methods to promote overall health. Casa's Community Health Workers further support patients with personalized education on medication adherence, dietary adjustments, and physical activity, fostering healthier lifestyles and empowering individuals within the community.


Since 2018, over 200 patients have attended classes at Casa, demonstrating the significant impact of the educational initiatives in empowering individuals to take control of their health and well-being. At Casa, education is a journey of empowerment, equipping the community with the knowledge and tools they need to lead healthier, happier lives.


Casa's commitment to continuous learning extends beyond patients to the dedicated medical team of staff and volunteers. Casa's team members engage in a dynamic exchange of knowledge and expertise through collaborative efforts. This fosters an environment where learning is a shared experience, encouraging staff to stay updated with the latest advancements in medical science and healthcare practices. Casa's medical team enhances their ability to deliver exceptional care by sharing insights and refining their skills. This continuous improvement culture ensures that every team member is equipped with the most current information and techniques, benefiting Casa patients.


Moreover, we are thrilled to announce that Casa was recently awarded a grant from Wolters Kluwer, enabling Casa providers to receive free access to UpToDate, an evidence-based clinical resource. This invaluable tool empowers healthcare professionals by providing them with the latest medical research, clinical guidelines, and best practices right at their fingertips. With UpToDate, Casa providers can quickly reference reliable information to make informed decisions about patient care, ensuring they are always aligned with the highest standards of medical practice. This grant significantly enhances the ability to deliver top-quality care to the Casa community, reinforcing the commitment to excellence and continuous learning Casa is known for.
