Express Pediatric Care has been in the community for over 10 years and has participated and supported many local and state outreach programs, and as such we continue to look for opportunities to help children in our local community.
Some of our past and current efforts include, working with organization such as;
- Reach Out & Read:
- Express Pediatric Care is involved in a program named, Reach Out and Read, it is an early literacy program where we give out books to those children from the ages 6 months – 6 years old. The importance of early reading helps children begin to understand colors, numbers, names of animals and begin an early love for reading
- Greenville County – First Steps Programs:
- From prenatal development through age five the South Carolina First Steps works collaboratively to ensure that all children start school ready to reach their highest potential with engaged support from their parents, caregivers, and communities.
- Participating in Bright Futures Programs:
- Our offices along with SCDHEC use Bright Futures Program as a tool for prevention and health promotion for infants, children, and adolescents. Giving valuable information thru every milestone of your child's life.
- BlueChoice Medicaid Backpack for Children Programs:
- From time to time we will be out in the community in events that BlueChoice Medicaid host for back- to-school programs giving away things from backpacks, school supplies, and books. These events help the community by allowing everyone to be able to have school supplies and during those events we offer vaccine records to those who may need it for the school year.
- South Carolina State Vaccine Program – Vaccine for Children:
- Thru the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (SC DHEC) we offer the SC State Vaccine Program, as a supplement to the Federal VFC Program. The purpose of the State Vaccine program is to allow providers to serve the "underinsured" childen in our community with low cost vaccines, and allows all VFC enrolled providers to vaccinate certain SC Medicaid insured-hardship children.
