The William A. Crosetto mobile health clinic has officially hit the road, and we are so excited to begin serving communities across Washington.
In the past month, we have served communities in Chelan, Stevens, Whitman and Spokane counties and partnered with local schools, libraries, and community events. We have also had the privilege to begin working with Coeur d’Alene, Okanogan, Colville and Spokane tribes. In additional to primary care health screenings, we have provided diabetes and blood pressure screenings.
Some of our favorite January events have taken place in Spokane, Washington. The mobile health unit partnered with medical students from the WSU Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine and served the public at the Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade on January 20, 2020.
Students, staff and faculty from WSU Health Sciences Spokane also attended the event and walked in solidarity to celebrate King’s life and his commitment to civil rights and service. For more information about the event, view our Exposure photographic story here.
We also attended the 9th Annual Spokane Homeless Connect, which took place January 30, 2020 at the Spokane Convention Center. This year’s Homeless Connect event was an incredible success, with over 800 people served. First and second year medical students from the WSU College of Medicine joined Dr. Luis Manriquez in providing blood pressure and diabetes screenings as well as other primary care services to those in need from our mobile health clinic.
This is just the beginning of the road for the William A. Crosetto mobile health clinic and Range, and we are excited to see about the expanded services and new community relationships spring will bring.
