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. 

FHCHC also has several School-Based Health Clinics that provide services to children

From Vacant to Valuable: Four New Communities Eligible for Replay Grants

ESPN, Under Armour and LISC have announced that four new communities are eligible for grants through the Replay initiative to transform vacant lots into community recreation hubs. The program, which is in its second year, will award a total of $430,000 to help neighborhood groups in Atlanta, Detroit, Oakland, and Toledo ensure that sports and recreation are accessible to all residents. As LISC’s senior program director for Sports & Recreation, Beverly Smith, stated, “Our on-the-ground experience in local communities coupled with the resources and expertise of ESPN and Under Armour has been a highly successful formula for creating useful recreational spaces.”

LISC Launches Charlotte Program Office

As we kick off 2019, LISC is continuing to grow its investments in economic opportunity and its on-the-ground presence in communities across the country. We unveiled a new program office in Charlotte this week that will spearhead $25 million in investments over the next few years—all designed to boost affordable housing, improve economic mobility and raise standards of living in North Carolina’s largest city. Long-time community leader Ralphine Caldwell has been named executive director to lead the effort.

Community-Police Partnerships Fight the Opioid Epidemic Where It Lives

A recent flurry of media coverage has shone a spotlight on the decline in opioid overdose deaths in Dayton, Ohio, a city that has been at the epicenter of the crisis. In an article for Next City, Mona Mangat, national director of LISC's Safety & Justice programs, and Matthew Perkins, a senior program officer and criminologist, parse the crucial ways a DOJ grant and technical assistance from LISC helped the community of East Dayton tackle opioid-driven crime and disorder—a local approach hundreds of communities can learn from.
