San Francisco Nutrition Services
The Child Health & Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program is a preventive health program serving uninsured children and those on Medi-Cal from birth to adolescence. Through CHDP, children receive comprehensive well-child exams on a periodic basis. Private and public medical providers enrolled as CHDP providers conduct the well-child exams and are reimbursed for their services.
