SCNM’s Roosevelt Health Center, located within the Roosevelt School District, treats students and families from 19 different schools within the district borders. This 4,000 sq. foot health center is the first SCNM Community Clinic with the unique design to incorporate group visits and encourage communal health education. This new health education model fits perfectly with the shared philosophy of the George Brooks Sr. Community School, the campus which houses this new health center.
Other nonprofit partners on the community school campus offer GED courses, parenting classes, after school programs, community gardens and a greenhouse featuring a hydroponic system. Together we are providing the education and tools necessary for this community to create a brighter future.
Medical students at Roosevelt Health Center will help empower patients of all ages so they can take control of their diabetes, asthma, obesity, or other illness. Today’s healthcare is about collaboration, whether with the patient, another allied health professional, or a vital community resource. SCNM clinical students will see patients alongside other health professionals to provide the best medical care the Roosevelt community has seen. Supervising doctors and residents will oversee third and fourth year medical students and provide treatment of acute illnesses, wellness exams with preventative screenings, individualized patient care, as well as group visits to address the most pressing needs of this diverse community.
