Welcome to Herban Health

Herban Health was started by a group of East Palo Alto residents to help people with limited resources help themselves to live in a more balanced and healthy way.

We believe that when members of a community are involved in the decisions about how healthcare is provided that the results are improved and more sustainable.

Herban Health’s mission is to listen to the health care needs of the community and then provide free holistic health care services to meet these needs.

We are currently conducting focus groups among holistic healthcare students and pracitioners to find out how we can strengthen our model. Also, we are recruiting student interns and excited to see how their ideas and enthusiasm will help us expand our work. Read more abour our mission...
