The Sarasota County Health Department’s Health In Motion Mobile Medical Unit staff will provide free and low-cost health services at 16 sites around the county during September.
The services offered at these regularly established sites include diabetes education and screening, blood pressure tests, pregnancy testing, HIV and tuberculosis testing, adult immunizations and health education. The staff also assists individuals who lack medical insurance and do not have a health care provider to find a medical home for ongoing health care.
No appointment is needed. Some services are free, including HIV rapid testing, with results in 20 minutes. Other services are provided on a sliding-fee scale based on income. A registered nurse is available at all sites.
The following is a schedule of dates and locations for the mobile unit in Sarasota:
• Monday, Sept. 19, 9:30 a.m.-noon: Selby Goodwill Jobs Center, 1781 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way
