Green Family Foundation NeighborhoodHELP™


WHO WE ARE

The Green Family Foundation NeighborhoodHELP™ (Health Education Learning Program) is the cornerstone of the medical curriculum of the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. A unique concept in medical education, the program sends student teams to visit patients in their homes in underserved communities of Miami-Dade County, preparing them to address the social determinants that affect health access and outcomes. Through these household visits, the program provides individuals and communities with a range of services including education, support, and primary health care provided through a Mobile Health Care Center, (a second mobile unit will soon go online), staffed by physicians and nurses from the College of Medicine, which makes weekly neighborhood visits. The College also just purchased a 3D Mobile Mammography Center that will provide household members with the latest technology in breast cancer screening.
