Group: Health Leads Boston

Code: HLB

 

About:  Health Leads’ (formerly Project HEALTH’s) mission is to create a health care system in which those unmet resource needs that compromise health are addressed as a standard element of patient care. To this end, we mobilize well-trained undergraduate volunteers, based in clinical settings, to connect low income patients with the basic resources – such as food, housing, child care, and fuel assistance – that they need to be healthy, demonstrating that this type of infrastructure can be feasible, affordable, and effective.

The Health Leads Boston site is the oldest and largest in the organization’s six-city network. It has grown from a single desk in the waiting room of the BMC pediatric clinic, staffed by ten students, to a robust operation that last year served over 2,400 families across five clinical sites, including the Boston Medical Center pediatrics, OB/GYN, and newborn nursery clinics, as well as at the Codman Square Health Center in Dorchester and the Dimock Center in Roxbury. Our aspiration going forward, however, is not merely to serve more children and families – although we will certainly do that – but truly to change the way that health care is delivered in this country.
