The mission of the Nurse-Managed Health Center (NMHC) is to provide health promotion service, including disease prevention, wellness, and health promotion education, to all those served and to serve as a faculty practice and student learning site.
The NMHC partners Marymount University's Malek School of Health Professions with St. Charles Borromeo Church.
The Center will provide culturally sensitive services to the diverse population who come from the surrounding community and the Hispanic population at the Church; no one will be denied access to services.
Public health programming will be offered, including exercise, proper body mechanics for healthy backs,weight control, nutrition for children and adults, breast self-examination, medication information, blood pressure screening, asthma and diabetes programs, lead poisoning prevention programs, home visits for homebound seniors, physical examinations for work and school, and more. Referral services to health providers and to free clinics will be provided as appropriate.
Marymount University's Malek School of Health Profession will provide health education programs directed by faculty and students. A nurse practitioner will serve as a preceptor for practitioner students and undergraduate students from the University and will keep records and provide follow up with those served. St. Charles Borromeo Church will provide space in its community center, office space, and storage space. Interpreters, coordinators, and office support will be solicited from those in the Church community.
