Wellness on Wheels

BLOOD PRESSURE AND BLOOD SUGAR SCREENING

Wellness on Wheels was launched in January 2019 to serve the YMCA of Greater Charlotte's footprint in conjunction with Atrium Health. Wellness on Wheels provides blood pressure and blood sugar screening to all. No insurance or YMCA membership is needed to access service through Wellness on Wheels. Each participant will have the opportunity to access screenings, a healthy snack, nutrition information and chronic disease prevention education. American Heart Association's Check. Change. Control. will be offered and health coaches will be on-site to answer any questions and get participants signed up for this blood pressure self-monitoring system.

Chronic disease and obesity are critical issues in the community which is why Atrium Health and the YMCA of Greater Charlotte have partnered to address the public health needs of individuals and communities.

Wellness on Wheels provides individuals with their baseline health number so they can make better, more informed decisions about their health and healthcare.

The schedule operates on a monthly basis where Wellness on Wheels visits each site on the same relative day of the month (i.e. First Tuesday of the Month)

For more information or to request the Wellness on Wheels unit, please contact wellnessonwheels@ymcacharlotte.org.
