    The newly renovated Oak Hill Child, Adolescent and Family Center, located at 2805 Metropolitan Parkway in Atlanta, officially re-opens Thursday, Feb. 7 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10 am. The center sits on a 22-acre campus and will provide coordinated care to children and their families from all over Fulton County.

    This is the fourth integrated health/service center the Fulton Board of Commissioners has opened in the four years since pledging to combat health disparities. Formerly a setting for behavioral health care, services at Oak Hill have been expanded to include specialty medical and oral health, an education center, and youth workforce development.

    A new addition is a teaching kitchen which will be used to provide nutrition education and healthy cooking classes. The campus also features a garden, a gymnasium and a walk/run track. AARA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) funding paid for a majority of the 10-month renovation.
