The Child Health Clinic for Refugee and Immigrant at Connecticut Children’s, Hartford, CT was established by Dr. Melissa Held in January 2018 to provide the initial medical evaluation and management for refugee children up to age 18 years. Our doctors and staff will review available medical records, interview the families, and assess for any potential infectious diseases, ongoing or new health issues, and provide appropriate initial referrals to other specialists. We will also help establish ongoing care with a primary care provider that is convenient for the family.
