Health Centers on Wheels
PPHP would like to introduce its educational and clinical center…on wheels. With this resource, we are able to make even more “house calls” – extending our excellent education programs and patient care to numerous communities outside of our health centers.
Our SmartWheels vans promote a message of good reproductive and sexual health by encouraging people to get tested for HIV and sexually transmitted infections, discuss birth control options and emergency contraception, pick up free condoms, and make appointments for additional services at a health center. Staffed by PPHP educators, they also bring accurate, confidential information about reproductive health to teens and adults throughout Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam counties.
SmartWheels visits homeless and domestic violence shelters, health fairs, special events, community centers, colleges, day laborer sites, and other venues where at-risk populations in Suffolk. Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam County can be accessed.
To arrange for SmartWheels to come to a school, health fair, fitness center, community center or other venue in Suffolk, call (631) 240-1147 or email the Education and Training Manager. In Westchester, Rockland, or Putnam, call (914) 220-1038 or email the Director, Education and Training
