Bettering the quality of life for backstretch workers

News & Highlights

SANTA ANITA CLINIC HIRES NEW DENTIST

The CTHF is pleased to announce that it has hired a new dentist, Dr. Timothy Wong.

Dr. Wong received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Physiology and Neuroscience in 2011 from the University of California, San Diego.  He received his doctorate in Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California, Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry.

Dr. Wong is involved in many professional membership organizations and has considerable experience both as a volunteer and in office practice.  He speaks basic Spanish and has already treated many of our backstretch workers over this past summer.  Initially, Dr. Wong will work all weekdays, except Tuesdays.

While we welcome Dr. Wong, we are sad to see Dr. Linda Roselle leave us, after 40 years of service!  Linda is well known to many of our patients, who will surely miss her.  However, Linda has asked if, when needed, she could fill in for Dr. Wong.  That request was readily accepted!

Please welcome Dr. Wong to our CTHF family!

CTHF AWARDED GRANT FROM THE THOROUGHBRED CHARITIES OF AMERICA

Our foundation is pleased to announce that we have just been notified that we are the recipients of a generous Grant from the Thoroughbred Charities of America (“TCA”).

The TCA, like the CTHF, is dedicated to improve the lives of those who care for the horses.  The TCA also is focused on improving the lives of the horses themselves — a worthy endeavor.

On behalf of all backstretch workers, we thank the TCA for their generosity and promise that the Grant money will used to make life, in general, more enjoyable for the hard working backstretch workers!

FITNESS MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE

The CTHF is now offering month-to-month fitness memberships at nearby fitness clubs near Santa Anita, Los Alamitos and Golden Gate Fields.  Eligible workers simply need to visit their local CTHF clinic, pay a $10 copayment and the CTHF will pay the balance.  There is no ongoing obligation and members can cancel whenever they want.  Signups for the upcoming month are usually due one week prior to the start of the next month.  For questions, visit your local clinic or call Aracely or Angela at (626) 446-0169.
