In 2014, the Florida Department of Health in Seminole County (DOH-Seminole) collaborated with local stakeholders to identify priority health concerns in Seminole County. Chronic disease prevention was identified as our main focus and that’s why we spearheaded this initiative. DOH-Seminole purchased the mobile health unit to extend services to impoverished communities in Seminole County. DOH-Seminole aims to build a healthier community.
