Community Health Education

The Community Health Education Department partners with other Truman Medical Centers programs and outside agencies to help provide the best community preventive health services available.  In addition, professional medical experts are available during screening activities to provide consultative information to persons receiving screening results.


The Woodson Health and Wellness Van, funded by Sara Morgan in memory of her mother, provides opportunities to the community to be screened for many chronic conditions and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle.

The Woodson Health and Wellness Van provides opportunities to the community to be screened for many chronic conditions and learn how to live a healthier lifestyle.  The 40-foot state-of-the art van includes computers with internet access, a private exam area, and a consulting area.  

The van provides screenings such as blood pressure, body mass index, and bone density assessments, free of charge to community groups.  In addition, the van provides routine outreach targeting women in specific locations across the metropolitan area.  

Other Community Health Education programs include:  

The Queen of Hearts Program targets women residing in urban core communities and provides cardiovascular risk assessment and counseling.  Those at risk are referred to TMC's Cardiovascular Services Department for a unique "Women Only" cardiac rehabilitation program designed to reduce cardiovascular disease risks.  

The BodyWorks Program helps mothers of young adolescent girls (ages 9 to 13) improve family eating and activity habits.  The program includes ten 90-minute weekly sessions between moms and their "tween" daughters at various community locations.
