The event also features keynote speaker, Jamie Caputo, Mobile Medical Unit Coordinator for Mobile Health of Evangelical. Jamie will speak about Mobile Health of Evangelical, a new service of Evangelical Community Hospital that was introduced in 2018 to increase access to healthcare in the more rural communities of the Susquehanna Valley. She will address the services provided, the areas that can expect to see the mobile unit in their backyards, and how individuals can take advantage of what it has to offer.

The event is free, however, will be limited to the first 100 people and registration is required. Registrations will be process in the order in which they are received. To register, please contact Evangelical Community Health and Wellness at 570-768-3200.
