Episcopal Health Foundation partners with Baylor on health improvement for underserved youth, young adults

Dr. Peggy Smith, director of the Teen Health Clinic, speaks to a group of high school students.

The Episcopal Health Foundation is a supporter of our work to improve health for underserved youth and young adults. For the past six years, the Foundation has helped fund the Wisdom High School Teen Health Clinic, which provides free primary, behavioral and reproductive healthcare for youth and young adults ages 13-24 in Houston’s underserved Gulfton area.

Wisdom High School is the most diverse high school in the Houston area and hosts students from over 50 countries, who speak more than 40 languages. The mission of the Teen Health Clinic is to extend top-quality healthcare — including preventive medicine, family planning, immunizations, behavioral healthcare and sports medicine services — to Houston’s underserved youth. Wisdom High School Teen Health Clinic serves as a medical home for Wisdom’s student body and eligible out-of-school youth in the area. Support from the Foundation enables the Teen Health Clinic to fulfill its vision of guiding underserved youth toward healthier lives and helping them achieve their full potential.
