Dr Tom Mulholland is funded by the Ministry of Health to visit Healthy Families New Zealand locations to deliver free public talk and free heart and pre-diabetes tests from his mobile clinic - a retro Chevy V8 ambulance.
Dr Tom's mission to offer 100 free community health checks may differ from our kaupapa, but we both want to turn the tide on obesity and preventable diseases in New Zealand.
We hosted Dr Tom throughout September so he could engage with people in our community who don't get to see a doctor very often. He visited various locations including PAK'nSAVE Alderman Drive, The Warehouse Lincoln Road, Unitec and Fresh Choice Ranui. At Fresh Choice shoppers received a health check in the check out!
MP Alfred Ngaro also fronted up to get a health check at The Warehouse Lincoln Road showing his support for initiatives that enable access to healthcare.
