Your support launched a much-needed patient service.

In November 2019, PPGC launched primary care services at the Prevention Park health center in Houston. This made it easier for patients to address all their health care needs in one place.

Primary care helps address and prevent some of the most common health issues such as high blood pressure, diabetes, asthma, weight management, and smoking cessation; as well as treatment for acute issues like cold and flu symptoms, urinary tract infections, and allergies. Mental health is as important as physical well-being, and we are also caring for patients experiencing anxiety and depression.

As with all PPGC initiatives and programs, primary care services were implemented to expand access and to advance our belief that all people deserve high-quality, affordable, and compassionate health care. “This was the most positive experience I have ever had with a health care appointment,” said a PPGC primary care patient. “I felt so taken care of and as though my provider truly cared about me.”

Thank you for believing that access to essential health care is a right, not a privilege – you power this important work.

From September 2019 – June 2020, at PPGC health centers:

52,404 health care visits were completed, including 7,418 cancer screenings and prevention services. 6,491 unintended pregnancies were averted through birth control. 69,870 STI tests were administered. 8,680 hours of education were provided. 18,713 supporters engaged in advocacy.
