Healthy Choices Now!

Healthy Choices Now! offers free medical screenings, health literacy and referrals several times a month in the community. We have partnered with social service agencies, specifically agencies that meet the needs of those who are hungry or homeless. There are many people who will not pursue health care when more basic needs are not met. 

This program moves our expertise working with the underserved outside of our clinic walls. Our medical care and services offer a unique solution for patients who do not need emergency care and who – without us – would likely go to emergency room or go without care. In effect, we are helping reduce the number of non-paying patients using the emergency room. 

Patients with abnormal results are given health information and referrals to affordable health services and medical insurance. We test for 

  • cholesterol
  • blood pressure 
  • body mass index  
  • A1C diabetes testing (when indicated) 

We also provide health education.

Healthy Choices Now! is offered at Faith Mission in Elkhart on the second Monday of the month from noon to 2 pm.
