Magee-Womens Hospital strives to enhance womens health education provided to patients and to the community.
As a CoE, our community education and outreach initiatives include:
Enhancing the provision of culturally-sensitive, linguistically-appropriate patient and community education in womens health, including telehealth.
The development of a community health agenda to expand womens knowledge about their health and to increase womens influence, including minority women, on policies that impact their health.
Developing and maintaining linkages and partnerships with various community organizations in order to facilitate outreach and education.
Magee's Outpatient Clinic and seven Neighborhood Health Centers are designed and located to optimize the provision of health and social services for typically underserved women and infants, including Magees TeenCenter programs.
