Pinellas County Mobile Medical Unit

FLORIDA - The downturn in the economy, coupled with Florida's mild climate has meant that areas such as Pinellas County, Florida have experienced a spike in it's homeless population. This inturn puts enormous pressure on local tax-payer funded medical falilities and programs that are already feeling the effects of budget cutbacks. The Pinellas County Mobile Medical Unit is part of a strategy to reach out to this population to address medical needs before their health concerns become an emergency. The mobile unit travels to over a dozen locations to connect with as many of the uninsured homeless as possible.
