Blood Lead Testing
Too much lead can harm both children and adults. No one knows exactly how much lead it takes to cause health problems. Many times there are no symptoms until the health problems are very serious. Usually people who are lead poisoned do not seem to be sick.

A public health nurse will visit you in the community after you return home with your baby.

Clinic Services
Services include birth control options, pregnancy testing, STI screening/diagnosis/treatment and much more.

WIC
The WIC Program is a Nutrition and Breastfeeding program that helps eligible pregnant women, new mothers, babies and young children eat well, learn about nutrition, and stay healthy.
