Wellness on Wheels
Children of all ages deserve a safe place to receive care. And research has shown that students who use school-based health centers have reduced absenteeism and tardiness.
That’s why Teen Xpress offers a free mobile health clinic for uninsured or underinsured at-risk youth. Moving between eight schools in Central Florida, this mobile health unit provides a variety of services, including:
- Physical exams (such as annual check-ups)
- Vision screenings
- Help finding dental care
- Mental health counseling (for depression, stress and more)
- Nutrition counseling
- Treatment for common illnesses (colds, sore throats, asthma, etc.)
Teen Xpress also can help identify early signs of more complex health issues, such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and more. If necessary, the mobile health clinic can connect teens and families to specialty physicians who treat adolescents with more complicated medical problems.
If you’re under 18 and want to take advantage of any of these services, simply have your parents complete a consent form below and bring it with you to Teen Xpress.
