Prescriptions for Prevention Program

In a busy office practice, doctors and patients frequently focus on the health issue that brought the child to the office. Many environmental factors contribute to a child’s overall health but are not often directly addressed. Doctors and parents may not know that community resources exist to help with environmental health concerns.

This program screens patients for environmental risks and automatically provides them and their healthcare providers with printed counseling materials containing community resources relevant to that environmental health issue.

Our Prescriptions for Prevention go a step further in preventing ongoing exposure by providing parents with the tools to intervene in environmental problems.
