Mobile Health Unit Outreach
Look for the Healthy Community Coalition Mobile Health Unit at community events or locations near you seasonally from spring to fall.
Mobile health outreach is just one of the ways that Healthy Community Coalition addresses the public health needs of Greater Franklin County residents. Our 34 foot mobile health unit is equipped with greater space for working with clients, new technologies like digital media for educational opportunities, and able to offer screenings to individuals with physical or mobility issues by way of the wheelchair lift entrance. HCC staff offers individualized health screening and counseling services such as:
- Blood pressure screenings
- Cholesterol screenings
- Blood glucose screenings
- Colon cancer screening kits
- Flu shots
- Osteoporosis (bone density) screenings
- Breast exams
- Schedule mammograms
- Tobacco dependence and treatment counseling
- Physical activity and nutrition counseling
- Body composition screenings (InBody720)
Healthy Community Coalition works closely with many area agencies to assist the public in obtaining resources that might benefit them or their family members. Western Maine Transportation, NorthStar Ambulance, Western Maine Community Action, SeniorsPlus, Safe Voices, and the Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center are just a few of our partnering agencies. During a visit to the Mobile Health Unit you can receive information about these and other agencies that provide support services to members of our community.
