As autumn begins to make an appearance and temperatures drop, the Mobile Medical Units continue on their mission to provide free medical care services to as many residents of our country as possible.
The October program includes visits to both the mainland and island Greece: Pella, Grevena and Serifos.
First stop for the Mobile Medical Units: Pella, on October 4-6. Next, on October 9-10 , the Mobile Medical Units’ team will be in Karpero in Grevena and on October 18-21 in the island of Serifos. During their visit in these areas, the doctors, nurses and technical staff of the Units will provide free medical care and examinations such as ultrasounds, mammograms and PAP tests to anyone who needs them.
The Mobile Medical Units are the result of an initiative undertaken by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) and carried out, with the exclusive support of the SNF, by the NGO Regeneration & Progress, in collaboration with Health Units SA. On each mission to islands and isolated areas of Greece, the Mobile Medical Units are accompanied by a medical team with specialists in more than a dozen disciplines, qualified nursing and technical staff, and medical school students, among others.
Since the launch of the program in January 2014, a total of 58 missions to remote areas of Greece have been completed, responding to the fundamental need of all residents of the country for open access to specialized medicine and medical equipment.
