COLUMBIA — The Know Your Numbers Mobile Health Unit takes its first drive tomorrow as it heads to the Boone County Health Department, 1005 W. Worley St., to provide free health screenings. 

The mobile health unit will be providing screenings from 8 to 11 a.m.

Know Your Numbers seeks to provide health education by examining numbers such as body mass index, cholesterol and blood sugar and having individual discussions about how to bring those numbers into a healthy range, according to a news release from Boone Hospital Center.

The main purpose of the Mobile Health Unit is to “help better the health of the community,” said Jacob Luecke, media relations specialist for the hospital.

The Know Your Numbers unit was a gift to the community from the Boone Hospital Foundation, allowing the unit to help residents all through mid-Missouri.  The mobile unit will be visiting Macon later this month for a similar free screening event.
