Champaign-Urbana Public Health District Participates in a Mobile Round Up

CHAMPAIGN, IL - On Friday, March 23, 2012, the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District (CUPHD) will partner with the State of Illinois and four other organizations to host the Wellness on Wheels (WOW) "Mobile Round Up".

The Wellness on Wheels program enables health providers, faith and community-based organizations to offer services to people who often times have limited access to health services: minorities, low-income families, underserved and rural communities. The mobility of this innovative program allows it to conveniently serve multiple populations. Wellness on Wheels has participated across the State of Illinois at such events as back-to-school fairs, Juneteenth Celebrations, health fairs, faith-based celebrations, outdoor sporting events and outreach events for the homeless.
