Providing screenings to those in need
Novant Health provides many screening opportunities to our communities in need. We offer mobile coaches that specialize in women's health screenings and well-being screenings, as well as events at community centers that offer free or low-cost screenings to community members.
What is a Remarkable You Screening?
Remarkable You events are free screening events by Novant Health Community Engagement. They provide blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol, triglycerides and prediabetes screenings in the communities surrounding Novant Health medical centers.
Knowing your numbers can help you have a better indication of your personal risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Novant Health Community Engagement offers Remarkable You screenings free of charge in the communities surrounding Novant Health medical centers and will assess values for:
- Blood pressure
- Body mass index (BMI)
- Waist circumference
- Cholesterol (total, good, bad)
- Blood glucose
This initiative, offered by Novant Health’s Community Engagement team, helps community members know their numbers, prevent serious health events and increase access to healthcare services. These screenings aim to serve those who are uninsured, underinsured, have no primary care physician or medical home and those who have undiagnosed prediabetes or diabetes.
Is your organization interested in hosting a screening? You can request a Remarkable You event for your organization by completing the online request form here. A Community Engagement team member will respond within three business days of your request.
Community care cruiser
The Community Care Cruiser, a 40-foot mobile clinic, provides immunizations (vaccines) to uninsured children in the greater Charlotte area. The cruiser is led by a medical director, nursing staff and social worker, and it visits identified underserved areas to offer vaccines.
If you need mammography where you live, work and attend civic activities and faith-based services, Novant Health’s mobile mammography services are available in a 38-foot motorized coach that travels to you. Our goal is to ensure women have access to high-quality breast health services, regardless of their ability to travel to a full-service imaging center.
