Erie Family Health Center - Lending Hands for Life
At Erie Family Health Center, we believe that health care is a RIGHT, not a privilege. Our mission is to provide accessible, affordable and high quality care for those in need. The Lending Hands for Life Program (LHL) at Erie Family Health Center serves over 370 HIV positive individuals from all over Chicago.
The Lending Hands for Life Program is special because it not only offers patients HIV primary care but also provides integrated behavioral health services, medical case management, health education, Hep C treatment, dental and eye care, adherence counseling and many other services to assist our patients in becoming and staying healthy in every form. The LHL team is a small but strong team made up of three medical case managers, a peer health navigator, a care coordinator, a medical assistant, an Americorps member, a manager, and some excellent providers!
The LHL Team works together to make sure that our patients achieve and maintain viral suppression and that all of their other preventative health care needs are met.
