The Division of Family Health has two major components: the Adult, Maternal and Child Health Program and the Dental Health Program for which it provides general oversight. The Adult, Maternal and Child Health Program (MCH) focuses upon health promotion and disease prevention in order to maintain and improve the health status of children, families and elderly Greenwich residents. The Division provides services to enable individuals to achieve and maintain optimum physical, emotional and social health. Components of all program areas provide much needed, high quality preventive health services and early identification of health problems through screenings, health maintenance, health education, home visits, consultation and communication with the medical and social service community.
The Division of Family Health provides wide ranging, high quality, public-health nursing services to Greenwich residents. Activities generate from two broad Program areas:
Learn about well child clinics; prenatal, postpartum and child home visits; preschool and day care licensing; senior health services and several other aspects of the Maternal, Child and Adult Health Program.
