About our programs
Here at Boston Children's Primary Care at Martha Eliot, we focus on the whole child and the whole family. Some of the other services we offer include:
- Our Asthma Education Program team helps children with asthma live normal, healthy lives. Talk to your doctor, or one of our nurses, to find out if a visit with the Asthma Education nurse practitioner would be a good idea for your child.
- The Advocating Success for Kids (ASK) program is a multidisciplinary team that evaluates and assists children who have special education needs. Project LAUNCH (Linking Actions for Unmet Needs in Children’s Health) is an arm of the ASK program dedicated to promoting social-emotional wellness in preschool-aged children.
- The Rapid Assessment of Skin Health (RASH) clinic at Martha Eliot is a clinic embedded within primary care designed to provide an enhanced level of care for patients with dermatologic conditions. Staffed by two pediatricians with training in dermatology, we see patients with a variety of skin conditions including eczema, acne, and skin infections. We can help with diagnosis or ongoing management, and may see you for one visit or over a more extended period of time. We have daytime and evening hours available. Your child must be a patient at Martha Eliot primary care to attend the RASH clinic.
- The KASA Program helps families of children with many or severe health problems. Our nurse practitioners and social workers work closely with our primary care providers and the specialists at Boston Children's to help keep these children healthy — and support their families.
- The Nutrition Team at the Martha Eliot is available to assist individuals and families in improving their nutrition and overall health. Areas of focus include picky eating, slow growth, and strategies for healthy eating.
- Our Healthy in the City program provides Boston families with the tools and resources needed to live healthy and active lives as part of the community mission. It is also designed to help motivate families to set goals and participate in fitness and nutrition activities.
- We know that navigating systems like the medical or educational system isn't easy. That’s why we have a resource specialist who can help. Talk to your doctor or one of our nurses if you think this service could help you!
- Health isn't only physical — mental health is just as important. We offer behavioral health services such as counseling for our patients, and can also help refer you to counseling and other services in your community. If you are interested in this, talk to your doctor or ask to speak to one of our social work staff.
- All young children need car safety seats — but not all families can easily afford them, or know how to use them. That’s why we offer car safety seats and trainings for families. Talk to one of our staff if you are interested.
- Our financial services staff is available to help you through the health insurance application process. Let us know if you need assistance.
