A new operational year has begun and in addition to deployment planning for 2016, the Mobile Medical Unit (MMU) team has been busy working on another exciting venture.

This year, for the first time, the MMU will be hosting the annual Mobile Health Clinics Association Pacific Northwest Coalition in Canada.

The MMU has been a member and co-lead of the Mobile Health Clinics Association (MHCA) Pacific Northwest chapter for the past three years. The organization brings together likeminded health-care focused mobile services to share knowledge, ideas and experiences with the goal of bettering mobile health solutions.

The group hosts regional conferences and an international event each year for all members. At past events, members of the MMU team have both attended and presented.

Scheduled for April 29, the conference will include presentations from the MMU team, the MHCA Board Chair, and BC Cancer Agency Mobile Mammography Screening Program.

In addition to the presentations and open panel discussion, there will be tours of the MMU, the new BC Cancer Agency Mobile Mammography unit, and potentially other units, as well as the opportunity to network with counterparts across BC and the Pacific Northwest states including Washington and Oregon. The knowledge sharing and leadership building at past coalitions has helped inspire improvements to both the MMU program and other participants’ programs.
