Life in a Rural FQHC
by April Alvarez-Coronna, MD
One of the best ways to get to know our programs is by listening to stories from the doctors that work on the mobile clinic every day. From their personal accounts, we learn more about the talented group of individuals that make up the Children's Health Fund National Network while getting a glimpse at the struggles and successes of working with homeless and underserved communities.
This month, the newsletter for the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Arizona Chapter features artciles from two of CHF’s doctors – Dr. Cody Conklin-Aguilera from our Phoenix Children’s Health Project and Dr. April Alvarez-Corona from our Southern Arizona Children’s Health Project.
Follow Dr. Cody from the South Bronx Health Center for Children and Families in New York to working on the Phoenix mobile clinic. In Dr. April's account, she explains what it means to be a “community pediatrician” and do more than just provide children with medical care.
We are very proud to share these stories with you and hope you enjoy getting to know our dedicated staff and what it takes to bring quality health care to the most vulnerable kids across the country.
