The Winston-Salem State University mobile clinic offered new services and changed its hours in January following a grant from the Kate B. Reynolds Charitable Trust, according to a Feb. 20 UNC-system press release.
The Rams Know H.O.W. Mobile Clinic, under the direction of WSSU’s Center of Excellence for the Elimination of Health Disparities, now offers school and work physicals, certain vaccinations, STD and STI screenings, pregnancy screenings and various types of counseling.
Services will now be offered four days a week at various locations in eastern Winston-Salem.
Melicia Whitt-Glover, executive director of CEEHD and a 1993 UNC graduate, said in the press release that, along with the $170,000 grant, the expansion was made possible through a partnership between WSSU, United Health Centers and Southside Discount Pharmacy.
Aaron Jackson, the mobile clinic coordinator, said in the press release that there has been a tremendous growth in requests for the services from the mobile clinic.
