Community Outreach Events

Knowing is half the battle. That is why we offer outreach and educational events to raise overall awareness of issues and health risks.Throughout the year, we host multiple events and classes designed to address the health needs of the community. These activities include:

  • Diabetic Conference
  • Health Fairs
  • Men’s Health Fairs
  • Journey to Better Health Radio Show
  • Other events as needed

Wheels of Mercy

We are taking health care on the road! We provide free health screenings at events, local health fairs, and summer activities. We can help you with a lot from the road, including: health care enrollment, blood pressure checks, diabetes screenings, chronic kidney disease screenings, lung health, HIV/AIDS testing, STD testing, and more. We’re always available to answer your health questions.

See where the Wheels of Mercy will take us in 2018. If you’re interested in having us at your event, contact Mimi Rankin at or 231-672-3214.

Lungs at Work

The Lungs At Work program offers free classroom presentations for Pre-K through high school in Muskegon, Oceana, and Newaygo counties. A combination of videos, printed materials, and hands-on learning tools reinforces the message that smoking and tobacco use are health hazards, while encouraging children to make healthy lifestyle choices.

Service Highlight

Pharmaceutical Access Program: Navigating Resources to Best Assist the Client

“Pharmaceutical Access” is much broader than just funding the cost of prescriptions. It encompasses reviewing a person’s insurance coverage, income and resources, as well as medication needs. We then assist them with navigating insurance enrollment and coverage issues. It also includes exploring opportunities to utilize pharmaceutical company resources, such as copay saving cards and patient assistance programs. The Pharmaceutical Access Program staff look for savings and resources in all areas and help each client navigate those resources as needed.
