Family Planning

The family planning program provides individuals with knowledge about and access to methods of birth control to empower them to improve pregnancy outcomes and decrease unplanned pregnancies. A range of effective family planning birth control methods and services are available. Services include contraception, physical exams, infertility education, counseling, and family planning education for adults and teens.

Well-Child Exams

The Child Health program offers well-child exams by a family nurse practitioner. These exams include pre-school physicals, referrals to specialty care, immunizations, and vision and hearing testing.


The immunization program reduces the morbidity and mortality associated with vaccine-preventable diseases. Vaccines are provided to adults and children following the guidelines set forth by the Advisory Committee in Immunization Practices within the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (ACIP). On-site and off-site immunization clinics provide vaccination opportunities for flu, pneumonia, tetanus, diphtheria, pertussis, and all other adult and childhood vaccines. The program provides consultation and vaccines for foreign travel.

Oral Health

The Dental Health Preventive Services program and the school-based Dental Sealant program's goal is to prevent dental decay in the most vulnerable teeth of the most vulnerable population. This includes those that are at the highest risk of dental disease. The program emphasizes prevention as well as early identification and treatment of physical and behavioral health concerns. We aim to serve as a steppingstone to the establishment of a dental home.

Currently this program is available in the City of Bristol and the counties of Smyth and Washington.
