Charm City Clinic’s Preventative Health Program is devoted to screening for and identifying chronic conditions early and providing longitudinal care. We currently run a program that screens clients for hypertension, diabetes, and vision problems. In the future, we will expand services to include cholesterol panels as well.
We rely on the help of volunteers and volunteer physicians to conduct screening and health education. Patients found to have abnormal screening results are provided with counseling on ways to help prevent progression of chronic conditions. In addition, patients who receive screenings at the Charm City Clinic will be referred through the Clinic’s Health Resource Center to be directed to appropriate longitudinal care.
