Wellness on Wheels

CDPHP partnered with Whitney Young Health and the Commission on Economic Opportunity (CEO) to provide free physicals, immunizations and other health screenings to Albany residents in need. The March 10 event was made possible with the help of Whitney Young’s new, state-of-the-art mobile health unit. The self-contained medical office on wheels is staffed by a physician assistant and medical assistant. Together, CDPHP, Whitney Young Health and CEO identified local residents in need of care, scheduled appointments and provided various health care services free of charge. As an added benefit, CDPHP members who completed specific health care screenings – including physicals and immunizations – were rewarded with gift cards to various retailers.
