Project HOPEmobile Coming to Campus

Project HOPE is partnering with UnitedHealthcare, with assistance from the University of New w Mexico, to bring HOPEmobile to rural New Mexico.

The HOPEmobile is a 64-foot trailer that is bringing much-needed health care services and resources to underserved communities in the southern border and frontier areas of New Mexico. It will be outfitted with sophisticated telemedicine equipment to connect patients with physicians who are hundreds of miles away.

The mobile unit, which is already traveling to underserved and isolated areas of New Mexico, provides free, comprehensive health screenings for diabetes, prediabetes and other chronic conditions including high blood pressure and heart disease. The initiative is among the first efforts by UnitedHealthcare to help build a nationwide telemedicine network.

On Tuesday, June 14, the HOPEmobile will be on campus for tours from 10-noon and a press conference at 12:30 p.m. The unit willbe at the corner of Tucker and Camino de Salud. The unit features a64-foot physician’s office on wheels and state-of-the-art telemedicine equipment that will connect patients with physicians separated by hundreds of miles to create an experience similar to an in-person visit.
