Wheels to Wellness
With generous funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Trenton Health Team and the City of Trenton Department of Health & Human Services will be able to continue and expand on-site health services by taking the Wheels to Wellness mobile health van to organizations and events across the community, providing free health screenings, referrals, and educational information to many of the city’s most vulnerable residents. Reserve the Wheels to Wellness mobile health clinic for your upcoming event!
Services offered around the City
Clinicians, clinical students and community health workers will conduct blood pressure, body mass index and blood glucose screenings, provide health education and offer general and specialized health assessments that are obtained through an examination and questionnaires. Mobile health clinic staff will also provide referrals to resources and health services that are not provided on the van.
Advancing Inroads to Health
Our project, Advancing Inroads for Health, which aims to evolve this work into a cohesive and deliberate community-wide program, will establish more formal procedures, goals, and branding/identity and will operate on a year-round basis.
Our immediate goal is to fill the gap in access to healthcare by providing comprehensive care to the residents of Trenton, irrespective of immigration or health insurance status, starting in the fall of 2016. Our long-term goal is to address the disparities that exist within the community regarding health literacy and conditions such as obesity, diabetes, and hypertension and other health needs.
