This partnership between education and healthcare is a win-win for the entire community.”

Located in the Career and Technology building on the Chapel Hill High School campus, Family Circle of Care will be able to provide health and wellness services right in the heart of Chapel Hill. The new clinic will be open 8am-5pm, Monday – Friday all year and provide the following services:

  • Pediatric and Family Medicine
