Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have decided to close our clinic and all services at Puentes de Salud until further notice.

Education

We believe that a comprehensive strategy to promote wellness in any community must also target the social determinants of health. Health services research has repeatedly demonstrated the positive effect of health literacy on medical outcomes. Our educational programs for community members serve as a vehicle for improving not only our community’s health literacy, but also tackling the social and environmental conditions that strongly impact their health.

This branch of Puentes de Salud enhances our community’s health and wellness by providing innovative educational programming to children ages 3 to 18, and their families.

Higher Education

Working with underserved communities is often one of the most formative experiences that students undergo during their education. Over the last 10 years, Puentes de Salud has provided a venue for more than 500 students from surrounding universities to serve our community. Service-based learning is a powerful pedagogic tool in our teaching strategy. Puentes de Salud gives students the opportunity to serve South Philadelphia Latinxs in two ways: by participating in their clinical care and by educational programs for patients and families.
