We are focused on ensuring that each child is up-to-date on a schedule of well-childcare. Our comprehensive program includes an immunization assessment, annual physical examination, TB test, hemoglobin/Hematocrit screening, lead screening, vision screening, hearing screening, blood pressure screening and dental examinations every six months. Also, we provide referral services for the children who are in need of medical and dental follow-up. We work with health and community organizations to bring services on-site to provide on-site health screenings and an array of health information.
