WELCOME TO HEALTH EDUCATION
Inspire People. Inform choices. Improve health.
At Kaiser Permanente, we believe good health is everything. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping you feel and be your best every day.
We offer onsite workshops and support groups, personalized health coaching in person and by phone, as well as online programs, tools and information – all designed to help you move more, stress less, eat better, and be healthy at every stage of life. Take advantage of these resources and start working toward your personal wellness goals.
The Health Education Center is an educational resource for you to use to learn more about your health and how to maintain it. It is a comfortable place with a wealth of health related information for adults and children. A friendly and knowledgeable staff is there to assist you.
Our services are open and accessible to both members and the public. A Kaiser Permanente card is not required to enter and use our materials. However, lending privileges are reserved for Kaiser Permanente members only.

If you think you have a MEDICAL OR PSYCHIATRIC EMERGENCY, CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY or go to the nearest hospital. DO NOT attempt to access emergency care through this web site. An emergency medical condition is a medical or psychiatric condition that manifests itself by acute symptoms of sufficient severity (including severe pain) such that you could reasonably expect the absence of immediate medical attention to result in any of the following: serious jeopardy to your health, serious impairment to your bodily functions, or serious dysfunction of any bodily organ or part. An emergency medical condition is also "active labor," which means a labor when there is inadequate time for safe transfer to a Plan hospital (or designated hospital) before delivery or if a transfer poses a threat to the health of the member or unborn child.
