Heart and Stroke charity launches Croí in Your Community mobile health unit

Croí, the heart and stroke charity, has launched its cutting-edge mobile health unit. This innovative initiative, made possible by the generous legacy gift from the Joe and Helen O’Toole Trust, marks a significant milestone in Croí’s mission to prevent disease, save lives, and promote recovery and wellbeing.

The Croí in Your Community Mobile Health Unit will be officially unveiled on Thursday, May 23, outside O’Tooles SuperValu in Tuam from 10 am – 2 pm. This launch event will showcase the unit’s state-of-the-art facilities and highlight its crucial role in bringing vital health services directly to communities.

Designed to visit various neighbourhoods and regions, the Croí in Your Community Mobile Health Unit will serve as a beacon of health accessibility, delivering essential health checks and educational resources to individuals across the region. By taking preventive measures directly to the people, Croí aims to empower communities to prioritise their cardiovascular health and mitigate the risks of heart disease and stroke.

Speaking about the launch, Croí’s Chief Executive, Mark O’Donnell, expressed gratitude for the visionary support of the Joe and Helen O’Toole Trust.

“The Croí in Your Community Mobile Health Unit represents a transformative step in our ability to reach those in need and provide them with the tools and knowledge to lead heart-healthy lives. We are immensely thankful for the generosity of the Joe and Helen O’Toole Trust, whose legacy will resonate in the hearts and lives of countless individuals,” he said.

The launch event at O’Tooles SuperValu will feature interactive demonstrations, heath checks, and opportunities for community members to engage with Croí’s Health Team. Attendees will have the chance to learn about cardiovascular health, receive personalised health checks, and gain access to valuable resources to support their wellbeing journey.

Croí invites members of the public to join in celebrating this occasion and to learn more about the vital services the mobile health unit will offer.
