Millennium Fellowship Project: Greater Ithaca Health Initiative
Our project has two main goals: 1.) to research different models of mobile health clinics in rural areas which have shown to be effective in the past and 2.) to assist the Ithaca Free Clinic in setting up a mobile health clinic of their own. For the first part of our project, we will use data collected from the local community to assess the healthcare needs of the community. We will search for mobil health clinics which have been shown to be effective in other communities, and research ways of adapting these clinics to serve the needs of the community. For the second part of our project, we will work with the Ithaca Free Clinic to create a new mobile health clinic. This will involve applying to grants and finding other sources of funding to financially support the mobile clinic, as well as finding staff and equipment to make the clinic operational. This will also involve optimizing the utility of the clinic (finding out the best times and locations to serve as many people as possible).
