Flint Board of Education, MI.
THE C.S. MOTT FOUNDATION CHILDREN'S HEALTH CENTER WAS BUILT TO SERVE CHILDREN OF THOSE BORDERLINE FAMILIES WHOSE INCOMES PROHIBIT PRIVATE MEDICAL CARE YET MAKE THEM INELIGIBLE FOR DIRECT RELIEF OF ANY KIND.

WHILE PROVIDING CARE FOR CHILDREN WAS THE MAIN FUNCTION OF THE HEALTH CENTER, IT ALSO SERVED AS A PEDIATRICS TRAINING GROUND FOR INTERNS, RESIDENTS, AND STUDENTS OF THREE NURSING SCHOOLS. IN ADDITION, IT OFFERED COMMUNITY PROGRAMS OF HEALTH EDUCATION. OPERATING UNDER THE FLINT BOARD OF EDUCATION, THE HEALTH CENTER SERVED SEVERAL GROUPS AND IN TURN WAS BENEFITED BY THE COOPERATION OF STILL OTHER ORGANIZATIONS, SUCH AS THE COUNTRY MEDICAL AND DENTAL SOCIETIES AND OFFICAL AND VOLUNTARY AGENCIES OF THE COMMUNITY. SOME OF THE STAFF INCLUDED PEDIATRIC NURSES, PHYSIOTHERAPISTS, HOMEBOUND TEACHERS, STUDENT NURSES, MEDICAL SOCIAL WORKER, DENTAL HYGIENIST, X-RAY TECHNICIAN, AND A REGISTERED NURSE.
