New teen clinic opening at West Jax Family Health Center

The Teen Sensations @ West Jax clinic is opening November 2. The clinic is for teens and will feature physicals, STD & HIV screenings, pregnancy tests, family planning and health education. All services are free.

The clinic is at the West Jax Family Health Center, a Duval County Health Department clinic. It is located at 120 King St. in Jacksonville.

The NEFL Teen Pregnancy Task Force identified teen-only clinics in each county as a priority. Research has shown that teens are more likely to use, and do better in, clinics that offer a comprehensive, interdisciplinary model of physical, behavioral, and reproductive health care that is explicitly designed to welcome adolescents and respond to their particular needs.
