Training & Technical Assistance team members at NNCC work at the intersection of health centers and public housing to identify trends in public housing that directly influence health center programming and residents served at the centers. Abbottsford Falls, a nurse-managed health center in Philadelphia and an NNCC partner, was one of the first health centers to receive special population funding through HRSA’s launch of the public housing primary care (PHPC) program in the early 1990s. The center successfully increased access to health care for residents of the Abbottsford public housing development. NNCC advances the mission of health centers like Abbottsford by developing and implementing cutting edge training and technical assistance for health center providers and staff.
