Healthy Community Coalition Announces Mobile Health Unit Schedule for July

Farmington¾

 

Healthy Community Coalition of Greater Franklin County (HCC) announces its July 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 allows 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: Farmington Save-A-Lot on Wednesday, July 1 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; Wilton Food Bank on Thursday, July 2 from 9 a.m.-noon; Wilton Food City on Thursday, July 2 from 12:30-3:30 p.m.; Industry Food Bank on Monday, July 6 from 9-11 a.m.; Fairbanks Food Bank on Monday, July 6 from noon-2 p.m.; Rangeley Food Bank on Tuesday, July 7 from 10 a.m.-noon; Rangeley IGA on Tuesday, July 7 from 12:30-3 p.m.; Phillips Food Bank on Thursday, July 9 from 9 a.m.-noon; Edmund’s Market in Phillips on Thursday, July 9 from noon-3 p.m.; Sandy River Farm Supply in New Sharon on Monday, July 13 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.; Livermore Falls Food City on Tuesday, July 14 from 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m.; Livermore Falls Food Bank on Tuesday, July 14 from 2-4 p.m.; Eustis Food Bank on Thursday, July 16 from 10 a.m.-noon; Fotter’s Market in Stratton on Thursday, July 16 from 12:30-3 p.m.; Salem Food Bank on Tuesday, July 21 from 1-4 p.m.; and Farmington Summer Fest on Saturday, July 25 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m..
