Gordon was inspired today to attend the launch of the Boyle McCauley Mobile Health clinic powered by TELUS Health in Edmonton as the Mustard Seed Development representative.
Today, there are nearly 35,000 Canadians experiencing homelessness on any given night, often living with complex health and addiction issues. These marginalized populations cannot easily access traditional medical care yet are in urgent need given the exponential rise in emergency room visits. They also typically lack a documented medical history that can be referenced by healthcare practitioners.
Today was also the time to announce the new Boyle McCauley Mobile Health Clinic powered by TELUS Health. This clinic is a partnership between TELUS Health, Boyle McCauley Health Centre, Mint Health + Drugs and The Mustard Seed, and is an expansion to the innovative TELUS Health for Good™ program. This program will help bring primary healthcare directly to people in need throughout Edmonton. Together, we are leveraging the power of technology to drive positive human outcomes and give people a brighter future.
