Child Health Conferences are conducted each month. Infants, pre-school and school age children, who do not have insurance, may attend the clinic. The clinic is staffed with a licensed pediatrician and qualified public health nurses. The services include a physical examination, growth measurements, lead screening, required immunizations, tuberculosis testing, hearing, vision and developmental assessments. This clinic is by appointment only, appointments can be made by calling (609) 844-7094.
If you or your child has attended the Child Health Conference at the Health Department previously and you are in need of a medical or immunization record, please complete and submit the Release of Medical/Immunization Record to the Public Health Nurse.
In partnership with the Mercer County Library System, free children’s books are available for underserved children at our child health clinic. Starting at birth, reading with children puts them on a path to success. What happens during the first few years sets the stage for the rest of a child’s life. Spending time together while reading aloud helps to create strong parent-child bonds and promotes healthy brain development. Children that are read to frequently have improved language and listening skills, experience stronger emotional connections to their loved ones, and gain a lifelong love of reading.
