Healthy Babies Initiative

Grant Award:

$102,000

People's Community Clinic

The People’s Community Clinic will use the Impact Austin grant to operate its Healthy Babies Initiative, which will expand PCC’s existing efforts to improve the health of the uninsured and medically underserved children of our community by adding weekly Saturday pediatric clinics, piloting a multi-hour group visit model for children’s well-child checks and introducing a program geared to increase the number of nursing mothers among their patients. PCC used the well-regarded March of Dimes “Entering Pregnancy” curriculum as the model for their successful group pre-natal visits. PCC’s success in this implementation provides the basis for the development of this new, innovative program to conduct group well-child checks to an additional 300 infants and children annually.
