Mobile Health Ministry - Service to Others

The Mobile Health Ministry through the Synod of the Covenant consists of six team members trained to provide various medical screenings such as glucose, vision, hearing, pulmonary function, blood pressure, basic skin screen, and basic dental. The mobile health van is stocked with over 26 educational displays, pamphlets and hands-on materials and taken to our migrant education sites throughout Ohio. Migrant children who participate in the health fair screenings go thorugh an exit interview with a physician and then referred, if necessary, for dental and/or vision follow-up. As a result, many of the migrant children with impaired vision will receive a free pair of glasses. And those with urgent dental problems are seen by a  local dentist. These services are not limited to the children attending the summer migrant education programs. Their parents are also invited to participate and will receive the same dental and vision follow up services as their children.
