POYHA which stands for People Of Yuma Health Association was created by local doctors to attack health issues before they get worse. Dr. Nadia Hanif an Internal Doctor by trade has seen just how bad curtain medical conditions can get. She and her husband Dr. Fazil over saw dialysis treatments for hundreds of Yuma patients and is taking this opportunity to make a major change.
Dr. Hanif hopes that with proper examinations and constant support patients will see results. According to Dr. Hanif POYHA patients will see results; not only in weight loss, but also increased patient education and well being. POYHA focuses on portion control as opposed to eliminating people’s food choices.
