Clinical Services Updates

To serve our community better, clinical services has made several programmatic updates. One such update is that the program formally known as Family Planning is now called Reproductive Health. Another language change that can be observed on our website is the switch from STD to STI. These changes are in keeping with CDC recommendations and reflect the inclusivity and openness our clinic is known for. While the name has changed, our services remain the same. Below is a comprehensive list of our Reproductive Health Services.

Reproductive Health Services:

  • STI Testing and Treatment
  • Pregnancy Testing
  • 1:1 Consultation with a Sexual Health Expert
  • Emergency Contraception
  • Free multivitamins with folic acid
  • Testing for Cervical Cancer
  • Breast/Chest exams and referrals for mammograms
  • Referrals for permanent birth control
  • In clinic birth control methods

Buncombe County’s COVID-19 vaccination clinic is located at 40 Coxe Avenue in Downtown Asheville. All COVID-19 vaccinations are available for free, no appointment necessary. Our clinic is open Monday-Friday from 8 AM- 4:30 PM.

Clinical FYI-

Lastly, our Clinical Services department is participating in Operation Allies Welcome, a Federal initiative overseen by Homeland Security to support vulnerable Afghans, including those who worked alongside the US, as they settle into civilian life in the United States. This program has resulted in a large uptick in the number of Afghan refugees seeking services in our clinic.
