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.
