New service will focus on planning, pregnancy, parenting
Area women have a new resource for health management, education, referral and advocacy as Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center opens its new P3 Center for Teens, Moms and Kids.
The center, located in the Hamilton B. Mizer Primary Care Center, 501 10th St., at Ferry Avenue, is supported by a four-year, $1.15 million competitive state grant awarded to address the health and social needs of women and their families.
"Expect to see us all around the community," P3 Coordinator Sarah Obot said. "We will focus on the three Ps - planning, pregnancy and parenting - and will offer frequent interactive workshops for teenage girls, parents-to-be, parents and grandparents."
"State Department of Health funding for P3 was made available to improve maternal and infant health outcomes and reduce the incidence of premature birth, low birth weight babies and infant mortality in communities with the greatest need," Memorial Community Programs Director Kendra McClain said. "Our team of community health workers will actively address family planning, children's health, parenting needs, housing, health insurance and other issues so important to the health of women and children."
