We want to empower all members of our community to enjoy the healthiest lifestyle possible.
We are dedicated to providing health and outreach services to meet the needs of our community.
Flu Shot Clinic
During flu season we help Pasadena residents and our neighbors throughout the San Gabriel Valley and surrounding communities take steps to guard against the flu.
Health Counseling Schedule
Our department provides free health screening, counseling, education and referrals.
Our staff is also active all year participating in community, faith organization, and school health fairs and events, working with many community-based organizations, health clinics and schools. These interactions inform the hospital about community health needs and allow us to respond with appropriate services.

The Huntington Hospital Community Asthma Program offers free asthma education for adults and parents of children with asthma.
- Individual asthma education. Classes are taught in English or Spanish and provide an overview of asthma triggers, medications and management of the condition.
- Asthma clinic. The asthma clinic offers a free asthma evaluation for children, adolescents and adults. All participants are screened, evaluated and treated by an asthma/allergy specialist. Ongoing treatment and referrals are provided as needed.

The Asthma Education and Management Program is based on the National Institute of Health (NIH) guidelines. Asthma education provides participants with a better understanding of asthma and it also helps them to better communicate their asthma needs to their doctor.
We are grateful for the following donors for their generous support of this community outreach initiative: The Pasadena Respiratory Health Foundation, and the Georgina-Frederick Children’s Foundation.
Our registered nurses work in partnership with other community agencies to determine the community’s needs and what can be done to help meet those needs. Free health counseling and screenings for diabetes and hypertension are provided at a variety of community sites every month.
Throughout the year we participate in health fairs, providing free health education for disease prevention and management, and maintaining a healthful lifestyle. We also hold over 30 free annual flu shot clinics throughout the community – providing an average of 2,500 flu shots annually.
