19 Jun Women’s health bus offers preventative care
Florida Hospital is bringing health services on wheels to women with their new mobile health coach, making preventative health care fast and easy.
The Healthy 100 Women’s Mobile Health Coach is a bus that travels to offer women convenient access to health screenings including mammograms, bone mineral density tests, body mass index tests and electrocardiograms.
According to the American Association for Cancer Research, only 50 percent of eligible women get their annual mammogram. Darla Fisher, a registered nurse and the manager for the coach, said that many times women don’t get their mammograms because they’re too busy and their health takes a backseat to their families’.
