Community/Corporate Collaborations for Mobile Health Outreach

Klabzuba Cancer Center at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth discovered that individuals accessing mobile mammography services often had healthcare needs beyond simple mammograms. To better serve its community, the hospital utilizes two mobile health coaches with full examination facilities as well as mammography suites. Staffed with nurse practitioners, these mobile clinics provide cervical cancer screening, prostate cancer screening, bone density screening, colorectal cancer screening, skin cancer screening, pelvic examinations, clinical breast examinations, and cardiovascular screening, as well as education specific to each service.

These mobile health units bring care to work sites and rural locations, removing a significant barrier to care access. Partnerships with businesses, government agencies, and other local organizations enable them to provide services to a diverse and widespread population.

Watch a highlight video showing the powerful impact of Klabzuba's mobile health program.
