We are so excited for our new Healthy Development Clinic! Read more about then on KRON4. Here is a small bit from the article:
“The idea of bringing a clinic of this type to the east side was led by three SJSU professors and clinical researchers: Associate Professor of Child and Adolescent Development Cara Maffini, Professor of Communicative Disorders and Sciences and speech-language pathologist Nidhi Mahendra, and Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology and clinical psychologist Matthew Capriotti.
According to Maffini, families living on the East Side can’t access the needed resources due to barriers such as money, transportation, and time to visit providers who support “healthy development,” such as available mental health professionals, physicians, and dentists.”
