bandc_clip_image005Mobile Medical Unit

The Mount Rogers Health District is on the road to good health!  Staffed by Nurse Practitioners, Public Health Nurses, and Health Educators, the mobile medical unit provides onsite health screenings and fairs to people in our local health department offices, schools, worksites, and other community locations.

Health Fairs are an effective and enjoyable way of educating employees about different health issues.  In addition to screening services, employees receive health education materials, and can interact and learn from our health professionals.  Health screenings available include:  Blood Pressure; Body Composition Analysis/BMI/Height/Weight; Cardiovascular Risk Assessment (for cholesterol), Diabetes/Blood Sugar; Pulmonary Function Testing; Respiratory Fitness Testing; Employee Physicals; Osteoporosis/Bone Density; Hemoccult Testing; Assessment for Skin Cancer; Prostate Cancer/PSA; PAP Smear/Breast Exam; STD testing and treatment; and Adult Immunizations.  Health education programs are also available and arranged to meet specific needs identified during the screening process.

The Wellness Team also conducts community projects including Fit For Life, promotion of healthy food and snack options at convenience stores, and creating breastfeeding opportunities at community locations, including local high schools.
