    A Tradition of Christmas Service Continues at The Salvation Army


    Daniel Herrera 12, Sonali Herrera 10, mother, Sujana Herrera volunteer to serve at the recent Thanksgiving dinner. They are from Riverside this is their second-year volunteering with The Salvation Army. The annual Christmas Dinner for hundreds of people is at 2626 Pacific St., in San Bernardino on Saturday, December 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

    (San Bernardino, Calif.) The San Bernardino Salvation Army Corp (www.salvationarmyusa.org) hosts its annual Christmas Dinner for hundreds of people at its headquarters, 2626 Pacific St., in San Bernardino, CA 92346. This year, the Christmas dinner will be held on Saturday, December 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

    “We share the joy and love of our God who sent his only begotten son, Jesus Christ, to save us from sin.  He taught use to love our neighbors as ourselves.  We share this Christmas meal and meals every day to show those in need that God truly cares for all of his children,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Citadel Corp director.

    Since 1887, the annual San Bernardino Salvation Army Christmas dinner has served thousands of families, mothers, children and men who do not have the means to provide themselves a Christmas dinner.  Some just come to enjoy fellowship with others.

    People come from Bloomington, Colton, Grand Terrace, Highland, Rialto, and San Bernardino for this annual Christmas celebratory meal.   The dinner often serves more than 300 people.

    “This year, guests will enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings, containing potatoes, gravy, stuffing, vegetables, pie and other food received from donations,” said Lt. Cathie McCully.

    “Every year, volunteers come together to provide the food preparation and service of Christmas meals to dinner guests,” said Major Daniel Henderson, Commander of The Salvation Army San Bernardino Corp. “Our volunteers and staff really do an outstanding job, to make a difference for those who are less fortunate during the holiday season.”

    Many of the services provided by the Salvation Army, such as this annual Community Christmas dinner, are made possible through in-kind donations and money raised through the Red Kettle Bell Ringer campaign.  “It’s one of ministries your donations serve,” said Major Henderson.

    Each Christmas, Inland Empire Salvation Army Corps in eight corps locations combine to serve about 1,800 people holiday meals.

    The hungry families are joined by hundreds of volunteers who help prepare the food and serve meals to the families.  Along with asking volunteers to help serve food, the Salvation Army is encouraging people to donate turkeys or hams, side dishes and other food by calling (909) 888-1336.

    “The San Bernardino Corps also needs food every day for those at our Hospitality House living shelter,” said Lt. Cathie McCully. Up to 100 family members stay in its transitional and emergency family shelters.

    Caring For Medi-Cal Patients For More Than 29 Years

    LaSalle Medical Associates celebrates 29 years of service with 160,000 patients


    (SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.)  In June 1984 Dr. Albert Arteaga and Maria his wife, a nurse started their medical practice not just to heal the sick and injured, but to change patients’ perception of “going to the doctor.”
    Dr. Arteaga explains, “I want everyone to feel that going to the doctor is no more intimidating than going to the grocery store.”
    The Arteaga’s also built their practice on the belief that “everyone deserves high quality health care”.  Everyone also deserves to be treated by their doctor with “dignity and respect regardless of ethnicity or income”.
    That philosophy has been successful.  On the first day of his practice Dr. Albert Arteaga and Maria saw two patients at their clinic at 17577 Arrow Boulevard in Fontana.  Now LaSalle Medical Associates cares for 160,000 patients across nine counties in California.
    Success came quickly as word spread of caring doctors that also accepted Medi-Cal and affordable cash payments.
    By 1992 the Fontana location grew and LaSalle had added clinics in Hesperia and two in San Bernardino

    On the first day, owner Dr. Albert Arteaga and his wife Maria then employed as his nurse and still his chief assistant saw two patients at their clinic in Fontana. Today, LaSalle Medical Associates has grown to four clinics and 120 employees, and an Independent Practice Association (IPA) serving more than 1,900 doctors.

    To run the growing business the Arteaga’s opened a corporate office in San Bernardino at 685 Carnegie Drive, Suite 230.
    The Arteaga’s started an Independent Practice Association or IPA in 1995 in response to changes in health care created by government and insurance companies.  The insurance companies prefer to negotiate for health care services and compensation with groups of physicians rather than individual doctors.
    LaSalle Medical Associates accepted the challenge and has grown to a network of 1,900 independently contracted doctors, hospitals and clinics, delivering high quality patient care.  Now LaSalle Medical Associates is one of the largest independent minority owned healthcare companies in California.
    LaSalle has a team of 120 healthcare professionals at LaSalle’s four clinics in San Bernardino County.  Through its IPA 1,900 independently contracted doctors, hospitals and clinics, deliver high quality patient care in Riverside, San Bernardino, Los Angeles, Stanislaus, Fresno, Kings, Tulare, San Joaquin and Madera counties.
    “I think 29 years shows we have been doing good things for our patients and employees and we have been doing it for a long time,” Dr. Arteaga said.  He added, “It proves two things. Number One, we are honest.  Number two we are reliable.  We aren’t here today and gone tomorrow.  In the medical field, being solid means being reputable and reliable.”
    In 29 years of business the Arteaga’s have seen good times and bad, recession and boom, and several business challenges.  Through it all Dr. Arteaga has strived not only to be a great physician, but also a good businessman.
    “Treating patients with dignity and respect is not only the right thing to do, it is also a good business practice, it has built us a solid, loyal patient base,” said Dr. Arteaga.
    Those patents in turn recommended LaSalle Medical Associates to their friends and family.  Some of who now have chosen LaSalle for their health care needs for three generations.
    “It’s not usual for us to see the second generation of children we started treated 29 years ago,” said Maria Arteaga.  “We are honored to be trusted with the lives of our patients and their children.”

    The LaSalle Medical Associates Healthcare team gave more than 10,000 flu vaccines last year. LaSalle is getting ready for this years flu season. Left to right: Dr. Joseph V. Selvarj, Dr. Albert Arteaga, Dr. Cheryl Emoto, and Dr. Felix A. Albano.
    The new flu season starts September 1, 2013 with flu vaccines available at all LaSalle clinics. LaSalle has the Fluzone High Dose vaccine for seniors, the intradermal flu vaccine is a shot that is injected into the skin instead of the muscle, and nasal flu mists for children and adults.

    The Arteaga’s have also focused on keeping expenses low and service quality high.  And they have helped many patients who might otherwise struggle to pay for even basic medical care to find insurance that will pay the bill.
    Since Dr. Arteaga’s specialty is pediatrics, La Salle Medical Associates initially focused on serving children of the lower income and disabled. Dr. Arteaga quickly realized there were even greater community needs.
    With his guidance, LaSalle expanded its service to include family and internal medicine, and obstetrics/gynecology. All stemming from the Arteaga’s “obligation” to “help whenever we can.”
    Public and professional recognition has not escaped LaSalle Medical Associates and The Arteaga’s.
    In 2012 Dr. Albert Arteaga, became California’s first-ever CDC Childhood Immunization Champion and one of only 39 across the country receiving the prestigious honor.

    The California Medical Association awarded him the “Ethnic Physician’s Leadership Award,” recognizing his contributions to medical care in the Latino community. He also was named one of the top 15 Latino-owned businesses in the Inland Empire by Hispanic Lifestyle magazine. 

    Dr. Arteaga was awarded the San Bernardino County Medical Society’s Merlin Hendrickson M.D. Award for his outstanding contribution to the community.
    Inland Empire Health Plan selected LaSalle’s clinics as Riverside and San Bernardino counties’ best healthcare provider, while the African American Health Initiative selected LaSalle as a “model provider” of Black healthcare in San Bernardino County.
    The San Bernardino Board of Supervisors has presented Dr. Arteaga a Resolution for his outstanding community efforts, and the Inland Empire Health Plan awarded LaSalle Medical Associates a Proclamation Award in appreciation of outstanding community work and for being the state’s number one enroller of the Healthy Families program, an insurance plan for children of low-to middle-income families.
    What does the future hold?
    “As a large provider of service to Medi-Cal patients we understand what the state’s implementation of the Affordable Care Act and expansion of Medi-Cal means here in California.  A lot of uninsured people with a high demand for service are going to be coming to doctors, clinics and hospitals in 2014.  LaSalle is preparing to welcome those one million new low income patients in the nine counties we serve,” said Dr. Arteaga.
    He added, “We are recruiting more health care professionals to increase our ability to provide more health care to more patients at the rate Medi-Cal pays”.
    LaSalle has also created new partnerships to fund expansion and is contracting with more cost effective service providers with larger service areas for lab work, x-rays, imaging and supplies, and expanded their billing and payment capabilities.

    For the Arteaga’s success is defined by service to those in need of medical services.  By any measure LaSalle Medical Associates patient growth is a testimony to their service to their communities.  Not bad for a couple of idealist who wanted not just to heal the sick and injured, but to change patients’ perception of “going to the doctor.”

    No Immunizations – No School


    “For families with no insurance, LaSalle Medical Associates offers immunizations for free through the California Vaccines for Children program.”


    (San Bernardino, Calif.) – August is the month many Inland Empire children head back to school. Many of them, especially in grades 7-12, need to make sure they have all the necessary back-to-school immunizations.
    At LaSalle Medical Associates children can get their vaccinations for free, often the same day.
    “At LaSalle we know how important childhood immunizations are to parents, schools and children’s health.  With most Inland Empire children starting school in only a few weeks, a delay could result in children missing school,” said Dr. Albert Arteaga, president of LaSalle Medical Associates, Inc.
    Dr. Arteaga urges parents to schedule appointments for their child’s back-to-school examinations as soon as possible with a letter to all parents served by their four clinics in Fontana, San Bernardino and Hesperia.
    “I received a letter from LaSalle reminding me to bring in my children for their annual check ups and immunizations.  I called at 8:30 a.m. Monday morning to get an appointment for 2 p.m. the same day,” said Malaika Jacocks.  “We lost our shot record and the nurse gave us certified copies for the school – without being asked, she was so nice.”
    The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) encourages all parents to have their children immunized.  According CDPH:

    • Children need immunizations (shots) to protect them from certain dangerous childhood diseases. Without immunizations, your child can get these diseases – some of which have no cure.


    • When you get your children fully immunized, you are giving them the best protection against these diseases. Getting immunized also helps protect your community.


    • Diseases spread more easily from person to person if people don’t have all their shots.

    “Children in families who receive Medi-Cal will not be charged for school vaccines,” Dr. Arteaga said. “And for families with no insurance, we can offer this immunization for free through the California Vaccines for Children program.”
    The California Vaccines for Children program is a federally funded program.
    The state of California requires that all children in grades 7-12 be immunized against whooping cough, also known as pertussis.  Before starting classes, children in these grades must show proof of having been immunized after their 10th birthday.
    “Most children are immunized against pertussis before they started kindergarten,” said Dr. Arteaga. “But the immunization weakens over time, so the new law makes sure adolescents are still adequately protected against this disease.”
    This state law came after an epidemic of pertussis cases in 2010, affecting more than 9,000 people and causing 10 deaths, including two infants in San Bernardino County. Pertussis epidemics affected many states in 2012 and California rates appear to be higher than usual again in 2013.
    Vaccinating older children not only keeps them healthy, but also prevents the disease from spreading from adolescents to infants and preschoolers, who are at greater risk of serious complications.
    Children starting kindergarten also need immunizations, including a pertussis, tetanus and diphtheria vaccine designed for young children called DTaP. They also need proof of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis and Varicella (chicken pox.)
    “If parents have kept up with their child’s immunizations from birth, only booster immunizations are needed for kindergarteners,” Dr. Arteaga said. “However, if the child is behind on their other required immunizations, they may need several doses of immunizations to get caught up.”

    The LaSalle Medical Associates clinics are at:

    Cross-Cultural Communications Drives Success For International Businesses

    Kathleen Dameron, president and founder of KD Conseil, works to build international partnerships with companies that are going through cultural changes.

    Kathleen Dameron, president and founder of KD Conseil, works to build international partnerships with companies that are going through cultural changes.

    (Paris, France)  Weathering the storm of an international recession is not an easy task. However, for international businesses, one thing has remained constant in good, as well as bad times, a competent multinational and multi-ethnic team. The ability to sustain effective cross-cultural communications is a crucial skill required for international business success in today’s global economy.

    For the past 21 years, KD Conseil has played a key role in facilitating this skill. Launched by Kathleen Dameron in 1992, KD Conseil improves the intercultural communications skills between the corporate offices and the executive management teams who work in the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia.

    Dameron, based in Paris, France, says “KD Conseil is strategically situated both geographically, as well as for business cultures in most industries and Fortune 500 companies. We know how to meet the demands and needs of our clients in an international business center for multinational corporations.”
    “I truly adore the city of Paris. The companies here have very strong business connections with the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia,” said Dameron. “It’s easy to travel from Paris all around Europe, the Middle East and Africa.”

    Bridging corporate cultures for more than twenty years, Kathleen Dameron founded KD Conseil to stimulate multicultural competency.

    Bridging corporate cultures for more than twenty years, Kathleen Dameron founded KD Conseil to stimulate multicultural competency.

    Dameron explains that some of the key challenges faced by companies working across national and corporate environments are born out of cultural differences. It is those differences in cultures that can also create the building blocks to success.

    “If an organization works with other cultures, I help them make it possible for senior managers, experts and employees to work together with greater efficiency and comfort,” said Dameron. “There is a joy that comes from working in an intercultural surrounding, discovery of different ways of succeeding, new and tried solutions to issues, as well as the pain of differences in attitudes and ways of working. My role is to help individuals, teams and organizations understand and appreciate those differences, thus developing a more harmonious working environment.”

    Standing the test of time, KD Conseil has developed quality relationships with clients, generating customer referrals, which have enabled her business to grow even in difficult economic times for businesses globally.
    “I believe that one of the keys to our success during this economic hardship is our ability to guide clients through different interventions,” said Dameron.  “For instance, we develop intervention materials that assist in increasing multicultural competencies or adjusting to an organizational change. The goal is for our clients to keep their employees motivated and improve performance and that has a positive affect on their bottom-line.”

    However, Dameron points out that KD Conseil’s affect should not be measured solely by quantity and direct immediate contribution to the bottom-line.  In fact, she informs that the best contribution comes when her company is embraced as a partner on a strategic journey to understand and implement cultural change.

    This enables her to implement the best evaluation measurements, reviewing what has changed over a six-month period.

    With the growth of the global economy, Dameron notes that her industry has likewise expanded. Others are finding their way to play a role in assisting businesses to adapt and adjust multicultural working environments on an international level.

    “This is an exciting time for the multicultural training industry,” said Dameron. “20 years ago, I had to explain what multicultural intervention was all about.  Today all of the corporate leaders I speak to say they are engaged in some sort of multicultural professional activity.”

    Dameron says the key is to go beyond merely giving a catalogue listing of “dos and don’ts.” KD Conseil delivers facilitators who develop strategies to increase individual, team and overall organizational multicultural competence.

    “Keeping abreast of what is happening in the business world, as well as taking the time to interview managers and business leaders is key to any successful intervention,” said Dameron. “However, investing in your client by listening, to develop their skills and vision, that is what allows you to create leading edge impact intervention processes.”

    CSA DUI ad 1

    “The Community Settlement Association is increasing attendance in their DUI program by asking for more people to attend. Advertising works when it’s done right,” says Carl Dameron.

    (SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.)   With 24 months of increased employment and retail sales it is quite clear we are in an economic  recovery.  “But tough economic times convinced  too many companies stop advertising their business, or they cut their public relations budget because its easier than cutting people,” says Carl M. Dameron, founder and Creative Director of Dameron Communications, (DameronCommunications.com) a leading public relations and advertising agency serving California.
    “The problem is many companies have been so lean for so long they have forgotten they must increase their ad budget to get more customers.  They are still in survival mode and afraid to advertise.  Waiting could very well be the wrong thing to do now,” said Dameron.
    A free brochure from Dameron Communications, Effective Advertising & Public Relations, outlines a step-by-step program to effectively reach a company’s target market, create a positive image of the business and entice their target market to use their products and services.
    According to Dameron the solution to increasing business in a changing economy is to change your advertising strategy. “The recession is ending and pent up demand is driving increased traffic and sales at many businesses. Buyers are redefining their purchases based on what they need, not just want.
    Dameron offers more solutions to energize or create and implement an effective advertising and public relations strategy.
    The program consists of four major components: research, ad development, media planning and placement and finally ad monitoring for effectiveness.  While a successful campaign fulfills all four components, a combination of effective planning and consistency is also required to be effective.
    Additionally, Dameron’s guide gives information on developing effective public relations, government relations and community relations strategies.
