Holistic mental wellness center coming to Fresno

April 10, 2012
By Todd R. Brown To some immigrants, the details of Western medicine lie in unfamiliar territory, so certain maladies wind up being treated by traditional healers rather than modern medical practitioners. To remedy that dichotomy, Fresno County plans to open a holistic wellness center that will link Hmong, Latinos and other groups with spiritually fulfilling as well as evidence-based solutions to mental health worries.

April 9, 2012
By Elise Craig For years, obesity and autism have been on the rise. Now, a new study is providing evidence that maternal metabolic conditions like obesity and diabetes may be linked to developmental delays and autism. Obese mothers are 1.66 times as likely to have a child with autism as normal weight mothers who do not have high blood pressure or diabetes, according to the study conducted by the UC Davis MIND Institute. They are also more than twice as likely to have a child with a second developmental disorder.

Community comes together for troubled youth By Lynn Graebner On a 100-acre ranch in the foothills northeast of Salinas, 28 students, many of whom are on probation, are building a house.

Video observation helps TB-stricken stick with meds By Julissa McKinnon Now that Sayuri Linet Salazar is feeling healthy again, the 19-year-old admits she's sometimes tempted to abandon the time-consuming treatment for her tuberculosis.

State launches smaller program for adult day health care

April 3, 2012
Monday’s launch of California’s new, smaller adult day health care program unleashed an emotional torrent of relief and anger for thousands of current clients and their providers after more than a year of threatened closures, lawsuits, patient assessments, rushed timelines and maddening uncertainty. Over the weekend, center administrators phoned frustrated clients still in limbo about their eligibility for the new Community-Based Adult Services (CBAS) program, telling them “Stay home” or “Come in until further notice” after a contempt motion against the state aimed at including more patients into the program was postponed Friday. More than 80 percent of existing clients have been approved for the new program. Original estimates by the state were that just 50 percent would be found eligible.
