Choices Teen Clinic

Vista Community Clinic provides primary health care and health education to the community focusing on those facing economic, cultural or social barriers. VCC operates two teen clinics that serve approximately 700 youth each month with free, confidential reproductive health visits. The teen clinic is staffed primarily by teens and serves as a healthcare workforce development opportunity for many local high school students. The purpose of the video is to introduce potential teen patients to the teen clinic and explain what happens when they come in for a visit. Produced by students Sarah Taylor, Lily Rodriguez, Stephanie Savchuk, Juliana Watson, and Jeremy York. Award winning project, Best Student Produced Community Service Video, CSUSM.

Student statement:
"Making this video has affected me personally in many ways. Before starting this video, I was not aware of how many people the teen clinic helps and should be helping. I also feel like this video has helped me realize that my opinion matters in a group and it's helped me realize how responsive people can be to other people's ideas. It has helped my collaborative skills and self-esteem. Overall, this video has been an extraordinary learning experience for me, not only have I been able to see how to work a camera, and see how the editing process is done, this video has allowed me to work with others as if I was their equal throughout the entire experience."
