Health Education

What is Health Education?

“It is a social, educational and political process that increases and promotes public awareness about health, promotes healthy lifestyles and community action in favor of health, providing opportunities and offering people to exercise their rights and responsibilities to train environments, systems and policies favorable to the health and physical, social and emotional well-being of patients”.

To prevent is to live

At SIM, we work every day to promote health prevention through the different life cycles of our patients. Health education at all levels is already a necessity as part of our initiatives as individuals to maintain a healthier life. When we educate ourselves about the different health care, how to eat and what exercises our metabolism needs, we begin to have a better quality of life.

In our effort to foster a culture of prevention and care to support the clinical management of primary medicine offered by our institution to the community we serve, our patients have the following services:
