UIW’s Ila Faye Miller School of Nursing and Health Professions hosted an open house of the Nursing Cardinal Wellness Center on Feb. 3 at Bowden Eye Care and Health Center.
The open house was an opportunity for the community to become familiar with the services offered at the center. Through the children’s Texas Medicaid and CHIP provider, nurse practitioners who staff the center provide Texas Healthy Steps examinations and immunizations to low-income children on the East Side of San Antonio. The center personnel also travel to area Head Start Centers to provide physical examinations to children enrolled in that program.
“We are very excited to be able to offer child wellness services to this area of San Antonio. There is such a need in the community for routine checkups and immunizations,” said UIW Clinic Coordinator Dr. Holly DiLeo. “We hope to become an integral part of the health and wellness of San Antonio’s children.”
