MOBILE HEALTH UNIT
A Mobile Health Unit (MHU) is a screening center on wheels. This initiative will provide an avenue to double our preventive screenings by reaching people where they are within the state. The MHU will provide preventive screenings, health education and allow an opportunity of coordination of care with the MHU coordinator. Screenings will include: blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, A1C, HIV, height, weight and BMI. The MHU coordinator will follow-up with patients that have abnormal results and share county level resources for follow-up medical care. The MHU will support a partnership with Arkansas Foodbanks statewide.
