MSM’s H.E.A.L. (Health Equity for All Lives) Clinic visited patients to host a H.E.A.L. on Wheels Mobile Health Fair at the Ingles on Millarden Rd. With support from the Ingles Corporation granting permission to have the mobile event on its premises, H.E.A.L was able to serve patients who otherwise would not have been unable to afford these services.
During the summer of 2016, MSM, with the support of the Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Healthcare Improvement (ARCHI), piloted an innovative high school community health worker (HSCHW) training program.
