Our online tools take complex medical information and make it simple and easy-to-understand. Our free educational programs can help you prepare for an upcoming procedure or manage your chronic condition. Have you ever sought advice about coping with heart disease? Or wondered how house dust and smoke impact your asthma? Perhaps you’ve considered undergoing a sleep study, but don’t know what it involves.

Maybe you’re frightened about having a colonoscopy, or don’t know your treatment options for hip osteoarthritis. For all of those diverse medical questions, Lompoc Valley Medical Center has an answer for you: Emmi.

Accessible free via our website here, the Emmi programs are online educational tutorials that distill complex medical information and make it easy to understand.

The animated and user-friendly programs can help prepare adults and children for upcoming procedures or teach about managing chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease or cancer.

Emmi programs are created to answer essential but often unasked questions.

You can watch the programs as often as you’d like, and even share them with friends and relatives. You can also view them if you’re just curious about a medical condition or procedure.

You can watch the programs on your desktop computer, laptop, smartphone or tablet. Most of the programs take about 15-20 minutes.

Emmi can help you understand your conditions and treatment options; learn about risks and benefits; help you make smart decisions about your health and more.
