Camino Health Center
CHARLOTTE, N.C.– Camino Health Center, (Camino Community Development Corporation Inc.) a bilingual nonprofit in the Charlotte area, is thrilled to announce the grand opening of their Camino Vida wellness center. Located on Camino Health Center’s campus, this facility consists of amenities such as an integrated fitness space, changing rooms, lockers, and a dedicated team of bilingual fitness specialists. The space also features a teaching kitchen, a concept typically found in hospital and educational settings. The Camino Vida staff works with patients by helping them develop personalized nutrition, exercise, and wellness plans to establish lifelong healthy habits. The program also focuses on managing chronic diseases through self-care, lifestyle change, and stress reduction. The generosity of the AstraZeneca HealthCare Foundation, along with the hard work of Camino Vida’s staff, is what helped bring the Camino Vida program to life. Even though Camino Vida was created a year ago the impact it’s had on the community has been huge.
“When there are people, and when there are organizations like Camino, that support you and give you this information and this advice, they help you to refocus your mind, to do positive things for yourself. It has personally helped me, and that I think has restored my mental health,” one patient said. Patients can only be referred to Camino Vida by a Camino Clinic medical provider or by a Camino Contigo (Camino Health Center’s behavioral health program) therapist.
WHEN: September 15, 2021: 10 am-12 pm
WHERE: Camino Health Center | 201 Stetson Dr. Charlotte, NC 28262
WHY: “The Camino Vida inauguration event is so important because it is a visible representation of what happens when a community comes together for the good of others. There are those who would have never had access to this type of tailored-specific care who now do have access to this state-of-the-art facility. It’s truly saving lives which is why we named it Vida, which means life in Spanish.” -Rusty Price CEO/Founder, Camino
