Programs: The Adagio Health network of health care providers serves over 78,000 women each year, providing comprehensive gynecological care including a wide range of birth control options conveniently located on site and preventive health education. Testing and treatment for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) are also available both for women and men. Comprehensive pregnancy care from the initial prenatal visit through delivery is provided, as are additional services as needed, including nutrition counseling and referrals for home medical visits, transportation assistance and parenting classes.
Adagio is an agency that goes beyond the usual health care to providing support and education. Although the emphasis is women, the services reach families as well as individuals and provide options for taking personal responsibility. Nutrition Services by credentialed professionals are a strength that is not emphasized in other health care programs. Supporting Adagio is supporting prevention!
