This new medical service focuses on advocating for vulnerable populations who have become disconnected from health care for any of a variety of reasons. These groups could include the elderly, the medically fragile, the homeless, high utilizers of the EMS system, and those at high risk of falling.  This program tries to identify these individuals, assess their situation and work as their advocates to find solutions that will improve their overall health and wellness.

Program schedule is subject to change. Contact the library 15 days in advance to request a sign language interpreter or if special accommodations are needed.
