Mobile Research Clinic for Outreach and Community Health (Mobi-COACH)

Sharon A. Croisant, MS, PhD
Cornelius Elferink, PhD
Preventive Medicine & Population Health

Over the past decade, our community has faced numerous natural and man made disasters and infectious disease outbreaks. Improving our capacity to prepare for, respond to, and recover from emergencies is vital. To assist, a recreational vehicle was retrofitted into a mobile clinic in 2013 and has been used to provide aid in emergent situations and travel to vulnerable populations. In order to meet the growing requests for COVID-19 testing and public outreach to the homeless population, President’s Cabinet funding will outfit this mobile clinic with impermeable surfaces, install a handicap ramp system, purchase a field portable gas chromatography-mass spectrometry unit, purchase clinical and phlebotomy supplies and allow for installation of an external canopy to be used for a waiting area.
