Owens: Money Coming To Help Children's Clinic


Story Updated: Jul 18, 2011

The North Country Children's Clinic is getting $64,000 from President Obama's health care plan, Congressman Bill Owens announced Monday.

The money is part of the Affordable Health Care Act, passed with Owens' support last year.

The clinic will use the $64,000 for its school-based health program.

“This funding demonstrates a strong commitment to reaching underserved children and providing high quality, accessible, comprehensive care to youth where they are – in schools,” clinic director Aileen Martin said.

"In my 30 years experience working with these programs, I have seen how valuable they are to the overall health of the communities they serve," Owens said. 

"I look forward to seeing more progress come out of the health care law as well as local school-based health centers."
