"The Southside and Dodson Avenue Community Health Centers’ focus for over 50 years is to provide primary and preventive medical care for people of all ages, including prenatal and OB/GYN services, as well as dental care for adults. The centers also offer educational information on nutrition, exercise programs, diabetes, hypertension and how to stop smoking. These services are a part of the centers' approach to providing high-quality clinical care regardless of the patients’ ability to pay and a reflection of their service to the community," officials said.
