LifeLong Medical Care • Annual Report Care • Compassion • Community
A Message from Dr. Marty Lynch After 41 years of serving the community, LifeLong Medical Care continues to innovate and improve the way we deliver health care. Last year we served 59,395 people in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Marin Counties in a variety of settings: from primary care, to urgent care and dental care, in schools, an adult day health care center, and in supportive housing facilities. In all settings, our health care providers nurture caring relationships with patients, relationships that sometimes endure for generations. These flourMarty Lynch, Executive Director/CEO

Despite political obstacles, we continue to pursue our mission of ensuring that health care is a right — not a privilege. We’ve recently relocated our LifeLong Pinole Health Center and expanded services. We’ve also launched a capital campaign to fund construction of the new LifeLong William Jenkins Health
Center in Richmond. Building on the decades of goodwill and quality medical care with which Dr. Jenkins served children, the new facility will serve patients of all ages. Our care and commitment to building a healthy community run deep. We strive to find new approaches to improving the health and wellbeing of all populations. Your continued support and contributions enable us to make a difference in your community. Thank you.

Moms Supporting Moms at Centering Program prenatal care is in a group. There’s so much education and support,” says Deborah SimonWeisberg, MD, as she looks over a group of new moms and babies attending the Centering Program at LifeLong Medical Care’s West Berkeley Health Center. “I started coming to the Centering Program when I was pregnant with my latest baby,” says Noel. “LifeLong called me and invited me to the Program when they learned I was pregnant. It was so good to be able to compare notes with other moms and feel like I wasn’t crazy.”
I love coming to the group and talking about my experiences. I wouldn’t have been able to meet so many moms without the Centering Program.” — Wendy Pregnant women who are due around the same time come to the Centering Program for prenatal care and continue to come for a while after the babies are born. Doctors see each woman individually, carrying out wellwoman assessments, giving vaccinations and PAP tests, and doing checkups on the babies. “At each visit, new moms are given post-partum depression screenings,” says Jocelyn DeSena, Coordinator and Lactation Educator at LifeLong West Berkeley. Women record their own weight and blood pressure. Then they “circle up” and have facilitated discussions on topics of interest, from breast-feeding, to nutrition, to how to handle the division of work in a household with a new baby. “My friend says she goes to the obstetrician and gets rushed out of the office,” says Michelle. “I said I get a whole hour at my visit!” “I love coming to the group and talking about my experiences,” says Wendy. “I wouldn’t have been able to meet so many other moms without the Centering Program.” “There’s a lot of healing going on,” says DeSena. “We are building a community of trust.”

Dental Care is Vital to Overall Health says Mostafa Barakzoy, DDS, about the nineyear-old girl who was his dental patient. “Every tooth was broken down from an infection. She was not able to eat because her mouth hurt so badly.” The head of LifeLong Medical Care’s Dental Program and a talented dentist, Dr. Barakzoy was able to fix the little girl’s teeth so she has a healthy and beautiful smile. He believes that oral health is critical to overall medical health, and he is leading LifeLong Medical Care’s efforts to improve dental health for all populations.
We have to reach out to all segments of society who need basic dental services. This outreach includes the minority community and increasing preventive services to kids.” — Dr. Mostafa Barakzoy, DDS “We have to reach out to all segments of society who need basic services,” he says. “This outreach includes the minority community and increasing preventive services to kids. Through good prevention, kids are less likely to have tooth loss and we can help prevent time off school.” LifeLong also is focusing on patients with diabetes, who face increased risk of gum infection and corresponding cardiovascular disease. “He’s the best,” says one of Dr. Barakzoy’s patients, Michael, who has seen him for the past eight years. Michael has diabetes and had broken teeth and a serious infection when he first came into LifeLong. Dr. Brakazoy pulled teeth, performed a surgical technique, and fit Michael with complete dentures. “He said to me, ‘Don’t worry. I’ll give you 100%.’ But he really gives me 200%,” says Michael, flashing a brilliant smile. “It’s a privilege to work with you,” says Dr. Barakzoy to Michael. He added: “In this job, there will never be a day when you get in your car after work and say, ‘What did I do today?’”

Loving the Days at Adult Day Health Center for gardening, “we center our care around what each individual likes,” says Kathy Ficco, RN, Care Coordinator at LifeLong Marin Adult Day Health Center. “I love the gym. I go two to three times a day,” says Jon, a Center Participant. “I like talking with people and sharing ideas,” says Margaret, who enjoys sitting in the sunny garden and sewing lap quilts as she chats. “Jon and I ride the Whistlestop bus together,” she adds. LifeLong provides free transportation from people’s homes in Marin and Sonoma Counties to the Center. Brian, a former chef, is focused on cultivating a pepper garden this year. “The herbs and beefsteak tomatoes are doing well, too.” Sometimes the vegetables are used in cooking meals at the Center. “It’s very, very nice here. They have good meals, too” says Center participant, Ron.
It’s a thrill every time I see this dog. You are the most precious dog. I just love you. I’ll be your great grandma, ok?” — Mary Kathy makes the rounds, chatting with participants and often taking blood pressure or checking blood glucose levels for people with diabetes. She’s always on hand if someone isn’t feeling well. She makes sure that people’s social needs are met. “We do everything we can to prevent social isolation.” “This is the best job in the world,” Kathy says. A young woman from the Marin Humane Society brings her own dog, Piper, around the games room for people to pet. “I bring Piper a couple of times a month. She loves getting the attention from everyone.” “It’s a thrill every time I see this dog,” giggles Mary, who picks Piper up and lets her lick her face. “You are the most precious dog,” she coos. “I just love you. I’ll be your great grandma, ok?”
Whether it’s love of music or a passion
Piper, the therapy dog, stops by LifeLong Marin Adult Day Health Center to visit. Gardening is a favorite pastime for Brian, a former chef. Staff members chat with participants and check on their medical needs. “We do everything we can to prevent social isolation,” says Kathy Ficco, Registered Nurse.

Friendly Faces Who Treat You Right Away good job,” says Gary about LifeLong Immediate/ Urgent Care – San Pablo. Dr. Desmond Carson, MD, has treated Gary several times. Gary knows he’ll get high-quality care from people who care about him, when he comes to LifeLong Urgent Care. “Patients don’t really care about how much you know, unless they know that you care, too,” observes Dr. Carson.
I always come to LifeLong’s Urgent Care in San Pablo. They do a real good job.” — Gary
LifeLong Medical Care opened its Urgent Care Center across the street from Doctors Medical Center on the same day the San Pablo hospital closed in 2015. While patients who need emergency department services still have to go out of town to be treated, patients who have illnesses or injuries that require immediate medical attention, but which are not life-threatening or serious enough to require emergency room care, can receive treatment at Immediate/Urgent Care. LifeLong also operates an Immediate/Urgent Care Center in Berkeley. At both locations, LifeLong’s team of experienced clinicians treat all types of non-life-threatening medical conditions, including accidents and falls, sprains and strains, fever or flus, vomiting or diarrhea, broken bones, severe sore throat, among many others. If patients don’t have a primary care provider at LifeLong, our staff will establish one so there is continuity of care. Note: Patients’ names within these stories have been changed to protect their privacy.

Doctors at LifeLong Immediate/Urgent Care – San Pablo work with a patient they have known for years. “Patients don’t really care about how much you know, unless they know that you care, too,” says Dr. Carson, MD. Mariam Kamyab, RN, is the Urgent Care Nurse Supervisor for LifeLong Immediate/Urgent Care – Berkeley.
“They helped me when I needed it,
because some people usually don’t care,” says an 8th-grade student at Elmhurst Community Prep/Alliance Academy about LifeLong Medical Care’s School-Based Health Center there. LifeLong Medical Care’s School-Based Health Centers are designed to offer age-appropriate, comprehensive medical, dental, health education, and youth-development services during and after school hours. “We provide tools for students and families to be more successful,” says Kristine Carter, a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and Lead SchoolBased Clinician at LifeLong’s West Oakland Middle School (WOMS) Health Center. “We try to keep people healthy and safe enough to make good decisions for the future. We take a social, mental, and physical approach.”
Y’all saved her life. You supported her. You showed her you cared and it was genuine.” — Grandparent of student
The Centers also provide psychosocial screening that surveys students about nutrition, self-harm, violence, sleep, and sexuality. Providers address any red flags immediately. “Some kids are being bullied or question their sexuality and are at risk for suicide.” The survey also can catch the silent kids who often feel nobody cares about them. The grandparent of an 8th-grade student at LifeLong’s WOMS Health Center says: “It’s what I’ve been looking for since her mom died. Y’all saved her life (when she wanted to commit suicide). You supported her. You showed her you cared and it was genuine . . . I love you guys.” LifeLong sponsors four School-Based Health Centers: Elmhurst Community Prep/Alliance Academy, West Oakland Middle School, Emeryville Health Center, and Rosa Parks Elementary School (behavioral health services only). “We have a good rapport with communities,” notes Carter. “We offer flu clinics for community members and have a food pantry that serves 140 families a month. It’s really rewarding work.”

School-Based Care Keeps Kids Healthy
LifeLong’s School-Based Health Centers provide tools to help kids and families be more successful, says Kristine Carter, a Nurse Practitioner at LifeLong’s West Oakland Middle School Health Center. The Health Center also sponsors vaccine clinics and a food pantry for the community at large. 2017 ANNUAL REPORT • 7
“My mother, Olga Graham, started a
wonderful program for seniors at LifeLong Medical Care in my father Victor E. Graham’s memory, after his death in 1987,” says daughter Dorothy Graham. “Now in 2017, we are in the 30th year of my family’s support of LifeLong’s programs to keep elders independent in their own homes and avoid nursing-home placement or re-hospitalization. Through ways both large and small, the funds fill in crucial gaps not covered through other resources.”
The Graham Funds have helped hundreds of patients here. Mrs. Graham, her heart is wide open!” — Rosilyne Wright
Rosilyne Wright, Elder Care Coordinator at LifeLong Medical Care’s East Oakland Health Center, emphasizes: “The Victor Graham Memorial Fund is a lifesaver. It makes all the difference in the world to people.” Wright makes home visits to Angela, who is recovering from a recent hospitalization. The Fund helped Angela with personal care items and a grab bar so she wouldn’t fall and end up back in the hospital. “Rosilyne and the Graham Fund came through for me,” says Angela. “They certainly have made a difference to my life!” With the help of the Graham Funds, many patients were provided with services that went above and beyond. LifeLong’s Social Workers have endless stories of such kindness. For an 81-year-old patient who wanted to see his dying sister in Louisiana, a bus ticket from the Victor Graham Memorial Fund meant he was able to see his 90-year-old sister before she passed. He had not seen her in 20 years and was extremely grateful for this precious gift. Dorothy Graham also knew there was a serious need to establish the Graham Respite Care Fund, which provides home care services for patients. It also enables families to get away for a few hours and recharge while knowing their family member is being cared for by a medical professional.

Suddenly, he hears the heartbeat of his soon-to-be-born brother or sister. “Oh my gosh!” he exclaims. Cardoso’s face lights up. Mom looks at her firstborn lovingly. As LifeLong Medical Care’s Women’s Health Lead, Cardoso never tires of seeing this kind of family scene: “I love my job.” “She knows us,” says mom Stacy about Cardoso. “We’ve been seeing each other during my whole pregnancy. She makes me feel so comfortable.” Once Stacy has her baby, she can come back to see Cardoso and her team throughout all stages of her life.
She knows us. We’ve been seeing each other during my whole pregnancy. She makes me feel so comfortable.” — Stacy
Her kids can receive their health care at LifeLong Ashby Health Center, too. When they moved to their light-filled space at Berkeley’s Ed Roberts Campus, above the Ashby BART Station, in 2015, “we realized we were perfectly positioned to start caring for children, too,” says Cardoso, who is an Associate Medical Director and Women’s Health Lead there. “It feels great to be able to care for all ages and whole families now. The patients and staff are loving it,” says Cardoso. Their team approach to women’s health care includes medical providers, midwives, community health workers, nurses, medical assistants, social workers, and health educators — all working to provide health care at every stage of a woman’s life. “Women come from a lot of different backgrounds and challenges. Our philosophy of care is meeting patients where they’re at.”

PrEP: Breaking Through the Stigma this?” That’s the reaction most patients have when they learn that by taking a pill once a day they can prevent HIV,” says Samali Lubega, MD, Associate Medical Director at LifeLong Medical Care’s East Oakland Health Center. The treatment is known as pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP. “We want PrEP to be part of patients’ overall sexual health throughout their lives,” says Dr. Lubega, a Family Physician with specialist certification in HIV care. “We want to break through the stigma.” Rather than “targeting” patients at high risk of HIV, LifeLong providers are coached to weave information about PrEP into natural conversations with patients.
We want PrEP to be part of patients’ overall sexual health throughout their lives. We want to break through the stigma.” — Dr. Samali Lubega In conjunction with University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), LifeLong Medical Care is participating in PrEP research. While most studies have been conducted on men, LifeLong is studying women of color, who have disproportionately higher rates of HIV compared with other ethnicities. “Women who are on PrEP have a 0% chance of getting HIV,” says Dr. Lubega. “And it’s safe for nursing women.” The PrEP drug, Truvada, is expensive, but most insurance plans cover Truvada for eligible patients, notes Dr. Lubega. Uninsured patients who are eligible can join Alameda County Health Program to pay for medication. “I think the most important thing is to show patients we’re invested in their holistic health, including sexual health,” says Trina Smith, LifeLong East Oakland’s Lead Medical Assistant and member of the study’s community advisory board. LifeLong has a very high HIV-testing rate for its patients and a successful outreach and treatment program for patients who test positive. Dr. Lubega has long had a personal interest in this work: “My parents are from Africa, and they had family members who died from AIDS.” 10 • L I F E L O N G M E D I C A L C A R E

“I’ve known Mrs. Flores my whole
life,” says Maria, who came to LifeLong William Jenkins Health Center when she was a child, and whose two children now get their care at the Health Center. “My father also came here, so it’s three generations of our family who’ve gotten our pediatric care here.” “It’s pretty cool that Grandpa came here, too,” says 14-year-old Ricky. “When my mother first passed, my kids were younger, and I didn’t know what to do,” adds Maria. “Mrs. Flores would call me and say, ‘You’ve got to get their vaccinations now,’ or ‘You’ve got to get the baby her check-up now.’ She told me everything I needed to do. They really take care of you here.”
It’s wonderful to know generations of families. Often I’ll be stopped on the street by my former pediatric patients. Oh my goodness, they grow up on you!” — Mrs. Guillermina Flores Mrs. Guillermina Flores, the supervisor for the Health Center, worked with Dr. Jenkins for 39 years. As one of the first African American pediatricians practicing in the Richmond flats, Dr. Jenkins treated more than a million patients. “He was a sweetheart,” remembers Maria. Dr. Jenkins passed away in 2012. His practice merged with LifeLong Medical Care soon after. Mrs. Flores has continued to work there: “It’s part of my life,” she says. “People trust you.” LifeLong Medical Care is constructing a new health center that will expand services and give permanence to the decades of goodwill and quality medical care with which Dr. Jenkins served the Richmond community. “I’m looking forward to the convenience of having care for all ages,” Maria says. “It’s wonderful to know generations of families,” says Mrs. Flores. “Often I’ll be stopped in the street by former patients who knew me when they were kids. Oh my goodness, they grow up on you!”

Johnny had been living on the streets
of Oakland for three years. He had pneumonia and a badly infected leg wound when he finally found his way to LifeLong Medical Care’s Trust Health Center. “I talked with Dr. J (Dr. Jason Reinking),” says Johnny. “When he looked at my leg, he said, ‘Ok, it’s really bad, but you and me are going to fix this.’ Something about the way he said that made me trust him.” “Trust brought me in. They sat me down and they LOOKED at me. They said, ‘You’re not going to be outside any longer.’ ”
At Trust, we’ve always strived to be leaders in whole-person care.” — Dr. Jeffrey Seal
Johnny’s leg wound was on the verge of sepsis. He had pneumonia and was addicted. His kidneys were only functioning at 50% levels. His teeth were rotting. Trust offered Johnny integrated, team-based care and primary care medical services, as well as behavioral health care services. It also provided recovery-focused medical care, specialty medical care, and health coaching. “At Trust, we’ve always strived to be leaders in whole-person care. Through community and collaboration, we’re developing ways to tend to all of the facets of a person’s life — housing, substance-use treatment, work, relationships — which help ensure their recovery,” says Jeffrey Seal, MD, Psychiatrist and Medical Director of Alameda County Health Care for the Homeless. Johnny received wound care daily. He kept his medical appointments, took his medications, and participated in self-care classes. His Health and Wellness Coach helped him find halfway houses and eventually qualify for his own apartment — a long-held dream. “I have a new lease on life. Without Trust in my life, I really don’t think I would be here.”
