means greater access to health care...
The mission of Community Care Network (CCN) is to bring "Faith
and Medicine Together" to eliminate health disparities that exist in the
minority, underpriveleged, and underserved populations through-out Alabama.
Physicians, nurses, dentists, nutritionists, therapists, technicians, and
medical assistants work with faith and community based organizations to provide
direct patient care, health screenings, and health education to those with
limited access to quality health care.
First in a planned fleet of Mobile Medical Vehicles, the "Care-A-Van" will
serve the Black Belt counties of Alabama and bring quality health care to other
underserved populations throughout the state.
With two well-equiped, state-of the art examination rooms, the Mobile Medical
Vehicle enables the CCN Medical Team to conduct screenings for blood pressure,
diabetes, cholesterol, HIV/AIDS, osteoporosis, depression, sleep disorders, as
well as vision and dental problems.
