Women Enjoying Life Longer Project (WELL)

Women’s health integration project piloted at the Title X family planning clinics in Baltimore County. The primary objective was to improve the general health of young women and, if they later became pregnant, to help them enter pregnancy in a healthier state. WELL provides a model for the integration of health services to promote wellness among Maryland women. WELL Project participants live at or below the federal poverty level and are uninsured. Presented as an innovative clinical women’s health model at the American Public Health Association, CDC, AMCHP, and CityMatCH.
