North Country Children's Clinic, Inc.
May 20, 2010

The North Country Children's Clinic's provides quality health care to area children regardless of their ability to pay. Their caring, concerned staff go above and beyond the call of duty to insure each child and family is treated with dignity, respect, and the very best medical, dental, and mental health care available. Without the Clinic, many of these children would go without care, or be forced to rely on expensive emergency room treatment - needlessly hitting the pockets of all taxpayers! The Clinic also encompasses the WIC program which provides nutritous food and dietary guidance to nursing mothers, infants, and young children - insuring a healthier start to countless young lives. Other programs include childhood obesity prevention and treatment, and the adolescent/teen pregancy support and education program. The staff is truly dedicated to the well being of each and every child they serve. It has been an honor to serve this vital community resource for the past six years.
