Child & Teen Medical Services
Various programs are available offering a comprehensive system of health care for children and teens.
Public Health Nursing Referrals
If you or someone you know could benefit from Public Health Nursing assistance, start by submitting a Public Health Nursing Referral Form (PDF) to our office. Once received, our nurses contact the referred individual to offer services.
California Children's Services helps families arrange and pay for medical care, equipment and rehabilitation for children with specific illnesses.
The Child Health and Disability Prevention Program provides no cost preventive assessments (medical, dental, and vision) for children and foster children of qualifying families.
Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP) provides services to the community for the purpose of increasing awareness regarding the hazards of lead exposure, reducing lead exposure, and increasing the number of children assessed and appropriately blood tested for lead poisoning. The CLPPP program offers home visitations, environmental home inspections, and nutritional assessments to families of children found to be severely lead poisoned. The CLPPP provides telephone contacts and educational materials to families of lead-poisoned and lead-exposed children. The CLPPP provides information and education to the general public, medical providers, and community-based organizations. Children under the age of 6 are at greatest risk for lead exposure because they are growing so rapidly and because they tend to put their hands and other objects, which may be contaminated, into their mouths.
The Teen Age Pregnancy and Parenting Program helps to improve the health and well-being of pregnant and parenting teens and their children.
