Healthy Community Coalition Announces Mobile Health Unit June Schedule

         

Farmington¾

The Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County (HCC) has announced its June schedule for Mobile Health Unit outreach events. Staff will be offering services such as blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose checks, cancer prevention, nutrition, physical activity and tobacco information, one-on-one health counseling and information, and assistance with referrals to the Maine Breast and Cervical Health Program and other health assistance programs.

 

Additional services include colon cancer screening kits for those who qualify and body composition analysis. The test kits, a less invasive way to screen for colon cancer, can be completed in the privacy of one’s own home. Body composition analysis will allow participants to see total weight and how many pounds of that weight are made up of muscle, fat, and water. It can track changes in muscle and fat tissue, and physical fitness improvements when weight may not change.

 

The Mobile Health Unit will be offering health screenings at Fairbanks Food Bank on June 1 from noon-2 p.m.; Rangeley Food Bank on June 2 from 10 a.m.-noon; Rangeley IGA on June 2 from 12:30 – 3 p.m.; Farmington Save-A-Lot on June 3 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; Wilton Food Bank on Thursday, June 4 from 9 a.m.-noon; Wilton Food City on Thursday, June 4 from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.; Turner Plaza on Friday, June 5 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.; Sandy River Farm Supply on Monday, June 8 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; Livermore Falls Food City on Tuesday, June 9 from 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.; Livermore Falls Food Bank on Tuesday, June 9 from 2-4 p.m.; East Dixfield Fire Department Blood Drive on Saturday, June 13 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m.; Salem Food Bank on Tuesday, June 16 from 1-4 p.m.; Good Shepherd Food Bank in Phillips on Wednesday, June 17 from 9-11 a.m.; Edmund’s Market in Phillips on Wednesday, June 17 from noon-3 p.m.; Wilton Senior’s Expo at Wilton Fire Station on Thursday, June 18 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.; Stratton Fun Days on Friday, June 26 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.; and Wilton Lion’s Club Yard Sale on Route 2 & 4 on Saturday, June 27 from 7 a.m.-noon.
