Introduction/Need for Service Heart disease is the leading cause of death and hospitalizations in Kent County (Michigan Department of Community Health, 2012). For many people, the first sign of heart disease is a heart attack (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, n.d.). In Kent County, people who have an annual income of less than 20,000 dollars a year have higher risks of developing heart disease than those who have higher annual incomes (Kent County Health Department, 2010). Through a brief review of the health statistics for this community it was determined that a need exists for a mobile health unit that offers screening and education to address heart disease for the residents of Kent County at times and locations that are convenient for the communities who are at higher risk for this disease.
Mission Statement/Philosophy Mission Statement Healthy Hearts in Kent County is a mobile nonprofit organization that pursues excellence in healthcare by improving the accessibility of education and preventative services to communities in the Kent County area that are vulnerable to heart disease.
