El Concilio Family Services presents the Dr. Raymond F. Lopez Jr. Golf Classic, aptly titled for a man who has dedicated his professional life to improving the health of farmworkers.
Dr. Lopez began his career in healthcare in 1988, as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Over the next 12 years he built a successful practice on a reputation for excellence and integrity.
With the intent of doing more for the community, Dr. Lopez made a major decision to leave behind a thriving practice to pursue a medical degree. He completed his residency at the Ventura County Medical Center in family medicine in 2008.
At the present time, he is the Supervising Physician at La Clinica Fresalud, provided by Healthstat for the health and well being of the agricultural workers of Reiter Affiliated, in Oxnard, Watsonville, Santa Maria and Salinas.
Dr. Lopez has been selected as one of thirty-four health care professionals in the state of California to participate in the prestigious Champion Provider Fellowship Program. The 2-year fellowship focuses on policy, systems and on environmental change related to obesity and chronic disease prevention in the Latino community.
He has consistently made solid connections throughout his career, building on his skills, always focused on the goal of improving the health of the farmworker community.
With this in mind, El Concilio Family Services is proud to name its annual golf classic The Dr. Raymond F. Lopez Jr. Golf Classic.
