Greater New Haven - Sign Up for Primary Health Care Services

Primary Health Care Programs and Services are the Bedrock of Preventing the Proliferation of Chronic Diseases and Continuous or Frequent Illnesses.

Fair Haven Community Health Center, Cornell Scott Hill-Health Center, and Yale NH Primary Care Center are places in Greater New Haven that offer comprehensive Primary Health Care (PHC) programs and services.  Primary Health Care is the Bedrock of Prevention and an essential key in controlling chronic diseases.  With the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Medicare for those over 65, and the expansion of Medicaid, there is very little reason not to have access to affordable health care in CT.  It costs much more to treat chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), severe obesity and high cholesterol than it does to prevent these debilitating conditions.  Effective PHC prevents pain, suffering, loss of wages, and the debilitating effects of preventive illnesses on the sufferers and on their families. Children are greatly affected by the illnesses that affect their parents and guardians.

OneWorld encourages you to sign up for primary health care and prevention services today.  Are you over age 50? Get screened for Colon Cancer.

There are three major Primary Health Care Centers in New Haven.  They are Yale Primary Care Center, (YPCC), Fair Haven Community Health Center (FHCHC), and the Cornell Scott Hill-Health Center.  These centers offer comprehensive primary health care to ALL residents of the Greater New Haven area.  Each center has its own guidelines and range of services based upon its charter and service guidelines.  This blog will focus mainly on services offered by FHCHC which offers a full range of adult, dental, diabetes, pediatric, prenatal, well-baby, preventive and geriatric care and services. By signing up to get your Primary Health Care and preventive care services at FHCHC you can also get free screening for Colon Cancer.  When caught early Colon Cancer can be successfully treated. Be Proactive about Your Health.  FHCHC accepts Medicare, Medicaid and regular (marketplace) health insurance; the FHCHC also offers a sliding scale charge for the uninsured.

Main Location: 374 Grand Avenue, New Haven, CT 06513

Phone: (203) 777-7411

Contrary to the information on the internet, FHCHC is not opened 24 hours daily.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Institutional Precipitation

Institutions can enable citizen action if they can be a precipitant rather than a programmatic intervener. A precipitating action avoids defining for neighbors what should be done, how it should be done and who should do it. Instead, it acts to precipitate citizens performing these three actions.

Organizing the Unorganizables

The leader in the drug-use harm elimination movement, Ann Livingston talks about her work as a community organizer dedicated to working at the local, regional and national levels to improve the lives of people who use illegal drugs.

Life after FIX

Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU) co-founder Ann Livingston talks about the successes and setbacks in establishing Insite, Vancouver's supervised injection site and the only one of its kind in North America.

Accounting for a Family’s Financial Future

A young mother in Chicago has solid footing on a career path and has taken control of her family’s financial future, thanks to a LISC-supported Financial Opportunity Center. LISC’s innovative Twin Accounts™ are part of the process, allowing her to save and build a credit score, all at the same time.

It’s Time to Help More Communities Prevent Crime

In a blog for CitiesSpeak, Jason Cooper, a director for LISC’s safety initiatives, describes the urgent work of helping residents, non-profits and police work together to prevent crime—which is exactly what LISC supports in 74 areas across the country through the Justice Department’s Community-Based Crime Reduction Program. As the national training and technical assistance partner for the program, LISC has an up-close view of how it succeeds in making communities safer, stronger and more cohesive.

A Study of Two Americas—and How to Bring Them Closer

A new study on race and economic mobility in the United States by economists Raj Chetty and Nathaniel Hendren stresses the role that neighborhoods can play in closing the country’s yawning, race-based opportunity gap. In the blog that follows, David Greenberg, LISC’s new director of Research and Evaluation, unpacks the lessons of the study, and posits how the findings can help guide the work of LISC and its partners going forward.
