COUNCIL MEMBER NATALYN ARCHIBONG TO CELEBRATE THE GRAND OPENING OF THE WHITEFOORD FAMILY MEDICAL CENTER

ATLANTA The Whitefoord Community Program will be opening the doors of its brand new Family Medical Center this Thursday, December 13 at 3:00 pm.  Council Member Natalyn Archibong, DeKalb Commissioner Larry Johnson, and the Whitefoord Community Program Board of Directors & Staff will be on hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony. 

The new medical center is located at 30 Warren Street in the Kirkwood neighborhood.  Whitefoord Community Program, originally established in 1995, has served the medical needs of thousands of students within the walls of their home schools. The program currently provides four school-based health centers located at Whitefoord Elementary School, Sammye E. Coan Middle School, and Crim Open Campus.
 
The new family facility at 30 Warren Street is a milestone for the Whitefoord Community Program as their client base will now be able to expand to adults as well as children.  This distinction allows the Whitefoord Community Program to continue as a Federally Qualified Health Center which means continued funding and improvements for the program.
 
In addition to providing pediatric clinics and the new family medical center, the Whitefoord Community Program is a nationally accredited Child Development program, and provides Beyond School Hours and Summer Programs for elementary and middle school students.  For more information about the Whitefoord Community Program visit them on the web at www.whitefoord.org
