The clinic offers preventative screenings and primary health care through an agreement between the UT Nursing Clinical Enterprise, an initiative of the School of Nursing, and AVANCE-San Antonio, which provides Head Start Services.

All children enrolled in Head Start in the Harlandale ISD and their parents and guardians also will receive health education from certified pediatric nurse practitioners, a registered dietician, licensed vocational nurses and AVANCE-San Antonio staff.

A contract with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment Program also helped fund the clinic expansion.
