Turner House’s volunteer and staff physicians and clinic staff work daily to provide the best pediatric medical care. Here are just a few examples of the difference they make:
Gicela was excited to be a new mother, but Andrew, her newborn, wasn’t sleeping well and she didn’t know what to do. Fortunately, she was referred to the Healthy Steps for Young Children program at Turner House. There she met with Maria Reyes, Healthy Steps Specialist, who helped her find a solution. Maria also atalked to Gicela about feeding and reading to her son. Today, at 5 months, Andrew is sleeping. . .like a baby.
Samantha and Bob closed their small business because of the economic downturn. On a tight budget and without health insurance as they searched for new employment, they brought their two young children to Turner House for back-to-school physicals and immunizations. “I am thankful Turner House was there for us when we needed them. My children were ready for the first day of school because their health records were up-to-date,” Samantha said.
