A Classroom on Wheels Training Students in the Community

We're educating the next generation of health professionals to be community partners. This changes where we teach, what we teach, how we teach, and who is teaching.

Community-centered Approach

Wellness on Wheels answers the call of the community by:

  • Bringing preventive health services—screening, education, and referrals—directly to people instead of making them come to us
  • Training health professions students using use a community-centered approach that puts communities and individuals at the center of the solution

Our community partners guide the work of the WOW Bus by telling us their communities' priority health concerns, and letting us know how we can complement the actions they are already taking.

We will also train neighborhood volunteers who will be health educators on the WOW Bus.
