The Friends of the Culver City Youth Health Center came into being after the establishment of the Culver City Youth Health Center, as it was named then, in 1986. Sandy Segal, school nurse, recognized a need for free medical care for children due to the lack of health insurance. Community activist Andy Alexander organized a group of community minded individuals and groups to provide fundraising activities to help support the nonprofit Health Center. Through the dedicated efforts and advocacy of the volunteers of the Friends group, the Health Center has been able to meet the goals of maintaining and improving the health of Culver City students for three decades.
Renamed the Sandy Segal Youth Health Center in 2014 in honor of Sandy Segal, the Health Center is operated by the Venice Family Clinic and provides free quality health care for Culver City students. A variety of services are offered including physicals, immunizations, vision and hearing tests, care for ongoing illnesses and conditions, prescription medications, and mental health counseling.
