Adolescent health center at Paseo High School

The Foundation's Community Care Funding Partners Program is an eight-year matching grant program designed to encourage community and regional corporations and foundations to support small-scale local health centers serving the medically indigent.This grant represents a renewal of Community Care Funding Partners Program funding for a primary care health center at Paseo High School. Services began in 1982 under RWJF's original grant. The objectives are to provide early detection and treatment of conditions and illnesses; motivate teenagers to adopt healthy lifestyles and discard risk-taking behaviors; and teach adolescents how to use the health care system appropriately and effectively. The clinic is staffed by a full-time NP, social worker and medical assistant; and a part-time physician and nutritionist. Operational management of the project is being provided under contract with the Adolescent Resources Council, which is a nonprofit agency. Swope Parkway Health Center remains the medical backup for the project and the project operates as a satellite of Swope Parkway. Ob/Gyn services are provided at no charge by St. Luke's Hospital.
