“We see a lot of kids with asthma,” says Dr. Omotoso, LifeLong’s Associate Medical Director for Pediatrics.

Dr. Omotoso examines a child. LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center in Richmond is participating in asthma research with UC Berkeley and UCSF.

Research Studies Environmental Links to Asthma in Richmond Kids Asthma is the leading chronic condition in children under age 18. But asthma rates across socioeconomic groups and minority cultures show significant disparities. LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center is participating in a new research study that looks at how social and environmental stressors influence asthma in children cared for at the health center in Richmond. LifeLong Medical Care is partnering with University of California Berkeley and University of California San Francisco on the pilot study. “We see a lot of kids with asthma,” says Dr. Omoniyi Omotoso, MD, Associate Asthma affects kids’ health. Medical Director for There are a lot of admisPediatrics at LifeLong sions to the emergency William Jenkins, who is room and hospital. Kids working on the study. miss school and fall behind. “Environmental factors play — Dr. Omoniyi Omotoso a part. The biggest issue here really is pollution. The oil refineries in Richmond contribute to the prevalence of asthma, as do socioeconomic factors. Many of the people living here are underserved minorities.” According to the California Department of Public Health, children ages 5 – 17 in Contra Costa


County (where LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center is located) have a lifetime asthma prevalence of just over 34%. The rest of California kids that age have a prevalence of about 18%. “Pollution from cars contributes to asthma,” says Dr. Omotoso, who treats patients at LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center. “These neighborhoods are often in close proximity to freeways.” “Asthma affects kids’ health. There are a lot of admissions to the emergency room and hospital. Kids miss school and fall behind. Parents who already struggle to survive have to take time off work. It impacts everyone — like a domino effect. Families don’t have a choice to move out of the area.” Dr. Omotoso hopes this study will show clear evidence about social and environmental triggers for asthma “so that we can develop ways to improve the health of the population as a whole.” 2018 ANNUAL REPORT • 3

A new mom in LifeLong’s Breastfeeding Support Program comforts her baby. LifeLong West Berkeley has about 15 to 20 new moms each month.

Jocelyn De Sena works with a new mom. The Breastfeeding Program is built into the newborn baby visit.

Breastfeeding Program Gives Support and Education to New Moms New mothers often don’t have extended family to support them, and breastfeeding is not necessarily seen as a routine part of life. So the Breastfeeding Support Program at LifeLong Medical Care has been designed to provide that support and education to new moms, says Jocelyn De Sena, a Certified Clinical Lactation Educator who works with new moms at LifeLong’s West Berkeley Family Practice Health Center. The program, which was piloted at LifeLong West Berkeley, is built into the newborn baby visit. De Sena sees about 15 to 20 new moms each month there. “At a newborn baby visit, I always ask consent to I found the program helpful. visit with mom before It’s great how Jocelyn the provider comes into would call me to check in the room. The moms with me and make herself are always like, ‘Yes! available. Goodness yes!’” — New Mom Lactation support is provided at the hospital and home. “Mothers tend to come home from the hospital a day or two before the milk volume increases. Moms can get nervous and afraid there won’t be enough milk. It’s totally as much an emotional issue as a technical issue,” says De Sena.



“I found the program helpful,” says new mom Donna. Her son was born with a tongue-tie, so it was “a really hard road for eight weeks or so. It’s great how Jocelyn would call me to check in with me and make herself available.” LifeLong West Berkeley also has set up a new lactation-friendly room for staff members who pump milk for their infants. The program also has been picked up at LifeLong Howard Daniel Health Center, where lactation educator Kierra Moorhead works with about five new moms each month. “I meet with moms until they are confident,” says Moorhead. “At the end of the day, you really feel like you did something that had an impact for that family,” says De Sena.

As patients move between hospitals, nursing homes, and the community, LifeLong manages their transitions.

The Expanded Nursing Home Program Care Team coordinates care so transitions are safe, efficient, and person-centered.

Nursing Home Program Expands for Better Continuity of Care “I feel taken care of,” says Bert, who recently had a stroke and transitioned from hospital to nursing home and back to his own home. “If I have to be in this position, LifeLong is the best team I can think of to be with.” LifeLong Medical Care’s Expanded Nursing Home program provides continuity of care for LifeLong patients like Bert in six nursing homes across the East Bay. As patients move between hospitals, nursing homes, and the community, LifeLong manages their care so that transitions are safe, efficient, and I feel taken care of. If I person-centered. have to be in this position, The program used to be LifeLong is the best team provided only for LifeLong I can think of to be with. Over 60 patients, but now — Bert it has been expanded to all LifeLong patients. Melissa Allen is a Nurse Practitioner and part of a five-person team that coordinates care for transitioning patients. “We have access to patients’ electronic medical records, and when someone is ready to leave the nursing home we send them home with a 30-day supply of their medications, schedule a follow-up


medical appointment, set up home health care, and make sure any medical equipment is made available,” she says. They also work with a social service team to see about getting the patient in a skilled nursing facility, if needed. “People coming out of a hospital often need nursing home care or rehabilitation prior to going home. We facilitate that transition, which often can last several weeks. Our care team follows the patient and keeps their Primary Care Provider informed.” The Primary Care Provider sees patients recently out of the hospital at least once a week. They see longer-term patients monthly. “I think patients like to know they’re connected,” says Allen. “Patients have an affinity for LifeLong and are pleased we’re able to help by coordinating their care back to their home health center.”


Heart 2 Heart workers go into the Berkeley community to check people’s blood pressure. “We meet them where they’re at.”

Heart 2 Heart has partnered with three South Berkeley barbershops — often a gathering place for African American men.

Heart 2 Heart: Building Heart Health Through Social Engagement Every Thursday, Miss Nellie goes to LifeLong Medical Care’s Over 60 Health Center to have her blood pressure checked and meet with friends in LifeLong’s Heart 2 Heart Program. When she goes home, she encourages her family to eat healthfully and beware of diabetes, which runs in the family. “It’s been a very good thing,” she says about Heart 2 Heart’s drop-in center. “You have to stay on top of these things.” A unique program geared toward lowering the incidence of cardiovasIt’s easier to hear about cular disease through health issues from a family social engagement, member or friend in the LifeLong’s Heart 2 Heart community.

The city experi—Vincente Cordero ences high rates of heartrelated illness, especially among African Americans. Operating primarily in South Berkeley, the program focuses on reducing health inequalities. “A big part of the program is bridging the gap between LifeLong Medical Care and the community,” explains Vincente Cordero, LifeLong’s Community Engagement Specialist. “Sometimes



people have an innate distrust of health care. It’s easier to hear about health issues from a family member or friend in the community. This program builds trust with LifeLong.” Heart 2 Heart has partnered with three South Berkeley barbershops — often a gathering place for African American men. During the health hubs, the public is invited to access health resources, have their blood pressure checked, and enjoy a healthy snack. “You’d be surprised how much happiness the ‘smoothie bike’ brings people,” says Cordero. Heart 2 Heart also features health-advocate training sessions, a mobile blood-pressure screening van, and mini-grants to fund healthy activities. “We meet them where they’re at,” says Carrie Balthrop, a Heart 2 Heart Program Specialist for LifeLong. Miss Nellie checks her blood pressure weekly and shares lessons from Heart 2 Heart. “It’s rewarding to me. I’m a great grandmother, so I want to have an impact on my whole family.”

Dr. Marsters (center) was recently recognized by the California Society of Addiction Medicine for her 15 years of volunteer service.

With Dr. Marsters in the lead, LifeLong has been a trailblazer in promoting the nasal spray antidote, Naloxone.

Saving Lives by Providing Antidote Kits for Opioid Overdose 115 Americans a day are dying as a result of the opioid crisis. But now people can take action. There is a harmless antidote, Naloxone, which anyone can carry. LifeLong Medical Care is promoting these wallet-sized nasal spray kits to people who take opioids medically or could be exposed through the use of recreational drugs. Just recently, a LifeLong Medical Care Member who was carrying this antidote was able to save their child’s life, says Jean Marsters, MD, a LifeLong Medical Care Psychiatrist and consultant on safer prescribing. “More Americans should More Americans should carry this antidote,” says carry this antidote. We Dr. Marsters. “We need to need to stop having so stop having so many many Americans dying.” Americans dying.” — Dr. Jean Marsters The kits promote safety in the homes of people who are taking prescription opioid pain pills for chronic pain or for someone who is recovering from surgery, for example. Naloxone is not an opioid and it’s not habit forming. Symptoms of an opioid overdose emergency can include: unusual sleepiness or unresponsiveness, absent or slow breathing, cold and clammy skin, and blueish nails and lips.


LifeLong has been a trailblazer in promoting Naloxone in the East Bay. Dr. Marsters worked with area pharmacies to teach them how to order this drug for their shelves. She conducted training sessions with LifeLong Medical Care Providers so they could discuss the issue with patients, developed a system whereby Registered Nurses could identify patients who might need the kit, and worked with Touro University Pharmacists on a project to review patients’ medical records to identify people who could benefit from having a kit. “Now, I’d love to have people embracing the Good Samaritan drug as a community safety item to save lives,” says Dr. Marsters.


A LifeLong Medical Care AmeriCorps Fellow distributes fresh produce at the Veggie Giveaway at LifeLong East Oakland Health Center.

The Veggie Giveaway now operates at 11 LifeLong sites, providing food for about 400 individuals.

AmeriCorps Fellows Work to Solve Health Inequalities Corn, carrots, greens, and bushels of seasonal produce are distributed with a smile — and often a recipe — to about 100 people at LifeLong East Oakland Health Center each Monday. The Veggie Giveaway, which is open to the public, is one of the most popular programs sponsored by LifeLong Medical Care’s AmeriCorps Program. AmeriCorps Fellows pick up the produce from farmers’ markets and bring it back to the health center, where staff set up tables and pass out food. Fellows chat with people and, when needed, offer additional information about food banks or how to sign up for CalFresh AmeriCorps has been a (foodstamps). really positive experience. The Veggie Giveaway I gained a lot of interpernow operates at 11 sonal skills — skills I LifeLong sites, providing wouldn’t necessarily gain fresh food for about 400 in a classroom setting. individuals. “It’s wonderful!” — Adrienne Carter says Bilan Jirde, Program Manager for AmeriCorps Health Fellows at LifeLong. Now in its 16th year, LifeLong’s AmeriCorps program focuses on health inequalities. “Twenty AmeriCorps Fellows get hands-on experience and professional development wrapped into one,” says Jirde. People usually come from a



background wanting to pursue public health, medical school, or social work case management. One of AmeriCorps Fellow Adrienne Carter’s projects has been to work with food insecurity. She has grown LifeLong East Oakland’s Veggie Giveaway from 40 people to 100. She also formed a partnership with Alameda County Food Bank so that LifeLong can access 1,000 pounds of food on a weekly basis. Carter and colleague Sonny Perfect also have created a wellness-basket program. LifeLong’s home health workers take the baskets of fruit and vegetables to patients they visit. Perfect, who wants to become a Physician’s Assistant, also has formed a men’s health group at LifeLong East Oakland. “AmeriCorps has been a really positive experience,” says Carter, who is applying to medical school. “I gained a lot of interpersonal skills — skills I wouldn’t necessarily gain in a classroom setting.”

LifeLong’s Care at Home Team brings health and social services to frail older adults living at home.

Patients like Sally are grateful to have care workers come to their home.

Care at Home Program Meets Seniors’ Medical and Social Needs “Thank goodness I finally got somebody on my side. I’m very thankful. It really is a blessing in terms of providing needs,” says Sally about her experience with LifeLong’s Care at Home program. With funding from the Thomas J. Long Foundation, the LifeLong Care at Home program enables frail seniors to live safely at home by providing a well-trained and compassionate care team to bring them the health and social services they need. “It’s not just addressing patients’ medical needs,” Thank goodness I finally says Deborah Workman, got somebody on my side.

Providers identify other needs that wouldn’t show up in a normal doctor’s visit, such as food insecurity, unsafe home environments, or treatable depression. “This program very much goes to our roots with the Gray Panthers, who led the charge of


providing access to health and social services for older adults,” notes Workman. Several LifeLong Health Centers have been offering home care for years. “We took what we learned from them and standardized and streamlined best practices,” explains Erica Morse, LifeLong’s Program Manager for Strategic Initiatives. “We’ll try the program out and then bring it to other LifeLong health centers.” “The value of home visits cannot be overstated,” says Brigitte Peltekof, a Social Worker on the care team. “Patients are so grateful to have people come to their home.” Funding from East Bay Foundation on Aging allows us to continue our focus on our Oakland senior population. “We also use the Graham Respite Care Fund quite a bit for home help services not covered by insurance,” adds Peltekof. “We’re very grateful to Mrs. Graham. Patients couldn’t be more thankful. I don’t know what they would do without her help.” We’re very appreciative of all of their support.


Dr. Saleena Gupte, an Integrative Medicine Homeopath, offers one-on-one homeopathic treatments.

The care team includes a Physician, Integrative Medicine Homeopath, Community Health Worker, and a Wellness Program Manager.

An Integrative Approach to Whole-Person Wellness “I think what we’re doing is unique. The homeopathic approach to wellness looks at all levels of symptoms. It’s a whole-person approach to care — physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual,” says Dr. Saleena Gupte, DrPH, an Integrative Medicine Homeopath at LifeLong Medical Care. “For someone to be able to access and feel a difference on many of those levels is very powerful,” Dr. Gupte adds. Through a donor-advised initiative, Dr. Gupta integrates the homeopathic I definitely noticed a big medicine with traditional difference. I feel wellness medicine available at is developing on more LifeLong. She conducts the levels. I’m healing mentally, monthly group sessions with a medical provider.

So it’s truly integrative.” She also offers one-on-one homeopathic treatments during one-hour sessions that are tailored to the individual patient’s needs. The first intake session lasts two hours. “It’s very innovative

to do this type of thing in a primary care setting and in a community health center. Just the amount of time patients get with a provider is unique.” Overall, integrative medicine patients report that they primarily seek treatment for stress and mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. Some people seek relief for chronic pain. Mental health symptoms, as well as physical health and overall wellbeing, improve with the homeopathic treatment, she says. “I definitely noticed a big difference” after starting homeopathic treatment, says Michael. “I feel wellness is developing on more levels. I’m healing mentally, physically, and spiritually. It’s more like enrichment, more of a solid connection with health. It’s helped me survive and thrive.” Patients have a “resounding interest” in all types of integrative medicine, says Dr. Gupta. “We are grateful to the donor who knew this was a need and has helped fund a program that truly supports people in need.”

It’s multi-generational. It’s good to see them grown into productive, responsible adults raising their kids.”


East Bay Community Recovery Project (EBCRP) also has joined LifeLong Medical Care’s family of services this year. The partnership allows LifeLong and EBCRP to offer a fuller array of medical, behavioral health, substance-use treatment, case management, and dental services to Alameda County residents. “By merging with LifeLong Medical Care, we are strengthening our collective mission to increase access to high-quality mental health, substanceuse disorder, primary care, dental, and wellness services to people with some of the greatest needs in our community”, said Marta Rose, EBCRP co-founder and LifeLong-EBCRP Program and Operations Director. East Bay Community Recovery Project was founded in 1989 by Joan Zweben, PhD, and Marta Rose, LMFT. Their vision to provide comprehensive substance use and co-occurring disorder care in Alameda County has helped more than 25,000 people build healthy and productive futures for themselves and their families. 2 0 1 8 A N N U A L R E P O R T • 11

An outstanding place, with great medical assistants, nurses and doctors. I have been to others — this is the place to come.

This is what medicine today should look and feel like. — LifeLong Medical Care Patient
