Who We Are

child-picture

Joint Venture Health is a research and development program at the School of Public Health dedicated to creating high-performing primary care systems for kids and families from low-income communities. We partner with Community Health Centers, health systems, community based organizations and health professional training programs to achieve breakthrough solutions.

 

 

Partners in Child Development

Pregnant women make 10-15 prenatal medical visits. Children visit their pediatricians on average 12 times during the first 36 months for well-child checks. Parents see physicians and their team as trusted messengers. We developed a primary care system that supports parents, pediatricians, obstetricians and their staff to be great partners in developing healthy kids and families.

Cross-Sector City-Wide Pilotnems-stockton

We are piloting this system at North East Medical Services (NEMS), the largest Federally-funded Community Health Center in San Francisco. NEMS serves approximately 10,000 children, the equivalent of 1 in 10 in San Francisco.

The first pilot site is NEMS’ Chinatown/North Beach Main Clinic. We also expanded services to their Portola Clinic on San Bruno Avenue!
