Dr. Rodriguez of NTACHC: Providing Vulnerable Children with High Quality, Accessible Healthcare

Medical staff at federally qualified health centers are the unsung heroes of healthcare for all, and the team at North Texas Area Community Health Centers (NTACHC) is no exception. Since 2002, NTACHC has provided high quality medical services to low income populations, bridging the gap of health disparities and medical accessibility. In 2019, the centers served 13,000 patients, and numbers are growing. To meet increasing demand, NTACHC has welcomed two new doctors, two new family practitioners, and a new director of nursing and access. Dr. Rodriguez is now the Director of Pediatrics, bringing her passion for culturally aware community health.
