Our application for funding to continue our programming under the Bureau of Primary Healthcare Community Health Center Section 330 funding will allow us to see our targeted number of unduplicated patients (4,685) patient per year in our Medical, Dental and Counseling and Support Clinics. Our main clinic is located at 1315 East 24th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55404 in the Phillips neighborhood of Minneapolis. The entire Phillips community is a federally designated Medically Underserved Area. The mission of the Indian Health Board of Minneapolis (IHB) is to ensure access to quality healthcare services for American Indian and other people in the community and to promote health education and wellness. We are a Community Health Center that serves as a medical home for many of our patients. Patients are able to access many services all under one roof at Indian Health Board. Our services are focused on American Indians because they experience some of the greatest health disparities including high rates of diabetes and heart disease. In addition, poverty rates for children under 18 in Minnesota are four times as high for American Indian children as for white children and rates of insurance are lower. Our current programs include primary medical and dental care, mental health, and community health services. Our medical programs emphasize health promotion (immunizations, w
ell-child care, lead surveillance, and community outreach), prenatal care, and management and prevention of chronic diseases such as diabetes and hypertension. Our clinical laboratory is capable of providing on-site screening and diagnostic testing, and coordinating comprehensive testing. Our dental clinic provides adult and pediatric general dentistry. The dental staff emphasizes preventive dental care and offers preventive dental care education. Our Counseling and Support Clinic provides professional therapeutic services including individual, family, and group psychotherapy, and psychological assessments and testing.
