HCC Mobile Health Unit Back at Wal-Mart for 2008
April 18, 2008
Healthy Community Coalition's Mobile Health Unit (MHU) is now back in front of the Farmington Wal-Mart every Tuesday from 12pm-4pm, offering free ScoreHealth screenings.
ScoreHealth is a health risk assessment program that includes cholesterol screening-total and HDL, blood pressure, counseling on nutrition, physical activity, tobacco cessation, and stress management. Results are given at the end of each visit and a copy can also be sent to
the primary care provider. Each assessment takes approximately 20-30 minutes. If you do not have time for a full assessment, stop in for a quick blood pressure check.
The Healthy Community Coalition is the community's connection to health information and the local health care system. If you are a person that has no health insurance or are paying a high deductible for your coverage, the experienced staff from HCC can explain the options that are available here in greater Franklin County including Franklin Health Access.
If you are new to the area or do not have a doctor and just don't know where to start looking for a physician, the staff on the MHU can help you out. The physician referral line is a toll free number to help you find a doctor in the Greater Franklin County area.
The coalition also provides free walking maps, nutritional information & recipes, and tobacco cessation information. Visitors may also qualify for no-cost mammograms offered through the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program (MBCHP).
The coalition is grateful to the United Way of the Tri-Valley area for providing funding to offer the free ScoreHealth screenings on the mobile health unit.
Visit the MHU any Tuesday between 12pm-4pm, located in front of Wal-Mart in Farmington.
