The Center for Child Health and Resilience is the joint effort of the Children's Hospital at Montefiore Medical Center and Children's Health Fund, a pediatric mobile healthcare provider for low-income families.
According to a press release, the clinic will look to address health disparities that affect South Bronx children--including high rates of obesity and diabetes--by trying to manage stress factors that lead to such health problems over the long term. Services like parent education programs and stress management workshops will be offered in addition to regular doctor visits.
