FARMINGTON – The Healthy Community Coalition’s Mobile Health Unit will be in front of the Farmington Wal-Mart starting Tuesday, April 12.

Every Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. free ScoreHealth screenings will be available. ScoreHealth is a cardiovascular risk assessment program that includes cholesterol screenings, total and HDL, blood pressure check, counseling on nutrition, physical activity, tobacco cessation and stress management.

Results will be given at the end of the visit and a copy can also be sent to a primary care provider.

Many other services and resources are available at the mobile health unit. The Healthy Community Coalition is the community’s connection to health information and finding access to health care.

For those who have no health insurance or are paying a high deductible for coverage, the staff can get information on Franklin Health Access, a program that helps people who do not have affordable access to health care.

Those who are new to the area do not have a doctor or don’t know where to start looking for a physician, the staff can help. The toll-free physician referral line can help residents find a doctor in the Greater Franklin County area.

Many other resources are available on physical activity opportunities, nutritional information and recipes and tobacco cessation information.

The United Way of the Tri-Valley Area is providing funding to offer the free screenings on the mobile health unit.
