From the VUMC Reporter:

Shade Tree program bolsters prenatal care options

When 27-year-old Dayana Moran heard about the Shade Tree Clinic’s new prenatal care service, she signed up right away.

“I didn’t know how I would get prenatal care until a friend told me about this,” Moran said.

Moran is one of the first patients to be seen in the Shade Tree Early Pregnancy Program (STEPP), a clinical partnership between the Vanderbilt University’s School of Medicine and School of Nursing.

Second-year medical students Marissa Blanco, Kelly Bingham and Erin Toaz saw a need for comprehensive prenatal care, so they applied for grants to support the once-a-month clinic held at Shade Tree, the free full-service clinic run by VUSM students.
