During the past year, over 14,000 people received prevention, education, screening, and disease management services.

The P.E.T. Program takes a comprehensive approach to the prevention, education, and treatment of chronic diseases for adults and children. Caridad works to reduce the onset of various chronic diseases such as diabetes, high-cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity. We work to promote a healthy lifestyle by giving participants the tools they need to be physically active, adopt healthy eating habits, and maintain a healthy environment for good overall health. The Caridad P.E.T. Programs include the following:

  • Health Education Classes and Workshops
  • Community Events & Health Fairs
  • Breast Care Education Programs
  • Screenings for HIV and other diseases/illnesses
  • Oral Health Program
  • Healthy Family/Lifestyle Modification Program
