The Wright County Wellness on Wheels Program
The Importance of Our Mission
"an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"
Through the almost two decades of providing services to the community members of Wright County our focus has remained relatively simple; educate about the importance of prevention and empower the ability to take part in healthy lifestyles. This encompasses the services we began doing at the time of inception and all the services added over the years; immunizations, diabetes screening, blood pressures, lead screening, hemoglobin tests, radon kits, height and weight checks, family planning, car seat checks, and more. We aim to increase the awareness of the importance of preventing disease and maintaining proper health.
Our specific focus has always been on the underinsured and uninsured populations by offering reduce-priced services, bringing our Mobile Public Health Clinic to each neighborhood, thus reducing the transportation burden, and offering various community resources. Two of our most influential services are education and time spent with each person. We are genuinely interested in hearing the stories of our visitors and will do everything we can to get them what they need.
