In an effort to increase access to medical care, the Community-University Health Care Center (CUHCC) recently held two mobile care clinics. The first was held in the CUHCC parking lot in Minneapolis on Sept. 26, and the second was held Sept. 30 at Hiawatha Towers for residents in that community.

CUHCC staff and volunteers provided flu vaccinations and testing for COVID-19 and STDs, wound care, and shared resources on voter registration, mental health and wellbeing.

"With the pandemic, we really want to provide access to needed services and remove any barriers to care," said Colleen McDonald Diouf, CUHCC Chief Executive Officer. "By providing pop-up mobile clinics, we are able to bring health care to the people in the high rises, in the community, and in our parking lot."

The mobile health initiative, supported by the Office of Academic Clinical Affairs, is a health sciences-wide effort to provide urgently needed community care initiatives to reduce health disparities.
