RN Joins Project Reach Out for Low Threshold Medical Care

We’re pleased to announce that our Project Reach Out van, which provides syringe exchange services, HIV/hepatitis C screenings and referrals to drug treatment, now offers low threshold medical care for clients. A part-time registered nurse joined our PRO staff in July, offering basic wound care, general health information and referrals to medical treatment. Barbara Bennet, HVCS’ Education Director, said: “Having a nurse on board the mobile unit builds trust within the community. We can also help those who traditionally avoid medical care to identify infections and early warning signs of much more complex issues.” Clients can access this low threshold medical care at PRO’s Poughkeepsie site on Mondays and Thursdays. For more information, visit the PRO page on our website.
