Mobile Health Central
Mobile Health Central is a nearly 39-foot mobile health vehicle for research, preventative health education, and recruitment. Made possible through a generous gift from The Herbert H. and Grace A. Dow Foundation in 2014, the mobile health clinic promotes interdisciplinary practice and education in under-served areas of Michigan.
Mobile Health Central is customized with:
- Soundproof booth and equipment to serve as an audiology clinic for pediatric, vestibular, and cochlear implant service.
- Multipurpose examination room.
- Accessible design including lift and handicapped-accessible bathroom.
- Storage facilities for vaccinations, medication, or blood.
The mobile clinic expands the college’s vision by striving to create an inclusive, healthy society. It provides a welcoming, accessible, safe space in our communities. We pride Mobile Health Central on being a nonjudgmental environment where anyone is welcome to receive the support and services needed to improve their health.
Mobile Health Central strives to bridge gaps in services and increase access to care through collaborative partnerships by providing health assessments, screenings and referrals to underserved populations in Michigan. As an educational platform, Mobile Health Central seeks to prepare learners to provide patient-centered care, to work effectively as a member of an interdisciplinary team, and to become culturally competent.
