Cafe 105: Reducing the Gap for Low-income Moms: Cherry Health and Luke Project 52

Room 203

The presentation shares the unique rationale and outcomes of The Luke Project 52 Clinic. Understanding the many factors affecting infant mortality the medical staff focuses on the issue of intermediate or inadequate prenatal care while the auxiliary staff and volunteers operate a free diaper, food, and clothing bank, a childcare room, and transportation program while ALL staff focus on building relationships with patients and their extended families to see if improved relationships will improve compliance and outcomes.
