Program Description
The mission of Family Scholar House is to address all of the barriers that disadvantaged single parents face in realizing their post-secondary educational goals. To assist with this mission, University of Louisville Pediatrics is collaborating with Family Scholar House to provide health care services and create a medical home for low-income children. This project will provide the families of Family Scholar House with increased access to a medical home and to provide information on the medical issues affecting children. The process will begin with a medical needs survey being conducted on each child and through collaboration and coordination, workshops will be provided to the parents. Each family will also work with a case manager to document their medical data in a format that will make it easy to transport during transition phases in their life.
