Summary

Yanawana Herbolarios is a 501c3 nonprofit organization based in San Antonio, TX, that offers free botanically integrative healthcare clinics through partner organizations to the medically under-served. Community needs greatly exceed the current clinic days that Yanawana Herbolarios is able to offer without a permanent clinic location. Our goal is to establish a clinic that will offer 1 walk-in day weekly, free to the community, providing over 1000 families with vital healthcare in the 1st year.

Challenge

According to the Texas Medical Association, only 1 in 5 Texans has healthcare insurance, the highest rate nationwide. With a population of 1.512 million, that means at least 302,400 San Antonio residents don't have adequate healthcare access. Type II diabetes affects 211,680 residents, and over 1 million are obese, according to the Metro Health Department. While individually successful, Yanawana Herbolarios is not able to meet community needs without providing consistent access to care.

Solution

Yanawana Herbolarios' objective is to establish a clinic in a central location, along public transport routes, that will be open to the community to walk-in and address their health concerns one day each week. Increasing healthcare access reduces costly emergency room visits and improves health outcomes. Yanawana Herbolarios focuses on serving specific needs, ie diabetic and heart disease, offering targeted solutions, wellness and nutrition education, and resources catered to community needs.

Long-Term Impact

With 1 clinic day per week, we can bring these benefits to over 1000 families in the first year of operation, with additional walk-in days, and specialty clinics for family health, elders, and the indigent, in following years. By this model, Yanawana Herbolarios will serve 25,000 San Antonio residents in the next 5 yrs, making a sustainable impact to community health outcomes. One study posits that diabetes prevention could save San Antonio $400 million, making a huge impact to quality of life.
