Why We Do It

There are persistent barriers to wellbeing; many children and adults struggle with poor health outcomes and other disparities, and need accessible, inclusive, and equitable services to be well.
Just two years after a traumatic heart transplant and barely able to walk, Denise ran a 10K race with the same HeartWorks staff that helped her recover. She says of the experience, “Anything is possible.”

When my patients return from a class at the Center for Well-Being, they are more equipped to take control of their health and inspired to live well. Sutter is lucky to have the Center as a resource for our health education needs.

project TRUE
I joined Project TRUE when I was going through a hard patch in life. My mental health wasn't as great as I had wished, & I was lost…when I joined Project TRUE I felt like I was doing something in life. I am very happy with the skills I have gained from Project TRUE from learning you can get breast cancer from vaping to getting better presentation skills. I would never change this experience because I’ve learned it’s very important to learn about all these risks that Project TRUE teaches us about.
