Disease Prevention

The Care Van® programs are one of our most impactful initiatives that helps prevent disease in the communities we serve. Throughout 2013, 18 mobile health vans traveled across Illinois, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, providing essential health screenings and immunizations for underserved children. Additionally, supplemental health services are often provided for both children and adults, which may include blood pressure screenings, body fat analysis, HIV testing, health education and dental services. The Care Vans complement traditional clinics by visiting schools, health centers, health fairs, public housing and other locations easily accessible to children and their families.
