A new mobile health clinic is helping kids in the Ho-Chunk nation. The new bus is traveling the state of Wisconsin to serve Native American children, free of charge.
The bus was donated by the Children's Health Fund of New York. It will do basic healthcare, including check-ups, immunizations, and physicals.
The goal is to reach Ho-Chunk children that live in outlying areas. "We care about the health of the Ho-Chunk Nation and the communities that we serve, we feel that good preventative help is good for several reasons," said Bethany Schilling of the Ho-Chunk Department of Health.
The mobile clinic will be in La Crosse the first Wednesday of every month.
