Health in Motion
In examining the needs of the Riverside community, we found that the homeless population continues to be severely underserved with little to no access to health care services. Health in Motion is a 38-foot mobile clinic that provides primary and preventative medical care, screenings, chronic disease management, general education, case management, pharmacy services and referrals to specialty providers for Riverside’s homeless population.
There are a variety of issues impacting this population including, physical, emotional, socio-economic concerns that need to be addressed. In the fall of 2008 Health in Motion was re-launched with a new focus in providing access to care for our homeless population in partnership with Path of Life Ministries as the operator of the program and Kaiser Permanente as a funding partner.
