Summer break is in full swing, but a mobile health clinic that brings essential medical care to those in need across Lee County is again participating in a pair of back-to-school backpack giveaways featuring free school physicals for local students.

From now through Friday, July 19, Premier Mobile Health Services is collecting donations of backpacks, three-ring binders, pens, pencils, flash drives and other essential school supplies at its walk-in clinic, 10676 Colonial Blvd., Suite 20, Fort Myers, FL 33913. Donations can be dropped off at the clinic during normal business hours or shipped by mail.

The first back-to-school event is scheduled for Saturday, July 27, from 3-7 p.m. at Mount Hermon Church, 2856 Douglas Ave., Fort Myers, FL 33916 in the city’s Dunbar neighborhood. In addition to the free school physicals and backpack giveaways, the church’s Community Fun Day Festival 2024 will feature a water splash zone, petting zoo, bounce house and other activities, along with a concert, comedy show and DJ.

On Saturday, Aug. 3, from 10 a.m. to noon, Premier will bring its mobile health clinic on wheels to Pine Manor Community Center for its back-to-school event. Premier will distribute free backpacks and provide free medical screenings and school physicals. The community center is located at 5547 Tenth Ave, Fort Myers, FL  33907.

“Our goal is to fill 500 backpacks to help support low-income families from underserved communities,” said Dr. Nadine “Deanie” Singh, founder and CEO of Premier Mobile Health Services. “Nearly two years after Hurricane Ian devastated our community, far too many families here are struggling to provide their children with the necessary items to be successful in school.”

If desired, interested supporters can review an Amazon wish list at https://a.co/2hVIhZH for suggested donations.

Founded by Singh in 2018, Premier Mobile Health Services offers an array of services to low-income children, families, individuals and the uninsured, including preventive screenings, vaccinations, nutrition counseling, school physicals and more.

Patients without insurance and those who provide proof of income below 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines account for two-thirds of its population and are provided care at no cost; others in need pay on a sliding scale based on income.

To learn more or schedule an appointment, call 239-288-7949. Additional information and the monthly mobile clinic schedule can be found online at www.premiermobilehealth.org.
