By Southcoast Health | Feb 28, 2017

NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — The Southcoast Wellness Van announces its March schedule for community screenings and vaccinations.

The Southcoast Wellness Van upholds Southcoast Health’s mission to promote the optimal health and well-being of individuals in the communities it serves. Southcoast Health focuses its attention on increasing access to services and caring for the entire population through wellness initiatives and disease management that are designed to limit — and preferably prevent — the patient’s need for acute care.

The Southcoast Wellness Van travels across the region bringing health screenings into the communities of southeastern Massachusetts. Free mobile health services available by the staff include:

  • Cancer screenings and education.
  • Blood pressure screening.
  • Cholesterol screening
  • Teen resource information
  • Glucose (diabetes) screenings.
  • Nutritional information and education.
  • Health education services.
  • Medical physician referral.
  • Vaccinations.

Please note that screenings sponsored by the Southcoast Wellness Van are sometimes held at community locations and not always on the van. Look for signs when arriving at a location if you do not see the van outside.

For more information and to schedule free screenings, please call Susan Oliveira, RN, at 508-973-8740 or email oliveiras@southcoast.org. You can also check the schedule on www.southcoast.org or subscribe to notices on Facebook and Twitter.
