Mobile Outreach Program

Since November 2020, the Kilala Lelum Mobile Outreach Program (MOP) has operated to provide outreach primary care services to individuals in Vancouver whose healthcare needs have not been met by more conventional models of care. Envisioned as both a mobile health clinic and a medicine house on wheels, the Kilala Lelum MOP van offers a combination of scheduled drop-in clinics, targeted outreach for individual MOP members, and Cultural Wellness outreach services. Primary care services are provided by an interdisciplinary team composed of Medical Office Assistants, a Program Manager, a Nurse Practitioner, Outreach Workers, and Registered Nurses, while cultural care and medicine (including smudging, cedar brushing, ceremonial song, and one-on-one support) are shared through the work and care of Kilala Lelum Elders and Knowledge Keepers.

Rory (Program Manager), Erinn (MOA/Outreach Worker), and Drew (Nurse Practitioner) outside the MOP van.

If you would like more information about the Mobile Outreach Program, a copy of our monthly drop-in calendar, or to make a request for Cultural Wellness outreach services for an individual or organization, please contact Program Manager Rory Marck at rory.marck@uihhc.ca or 778-554-3484.

Kilala Lelum’s Mobile Outreach Program is made possible through the financial contribution of the Telus Health for Good Program.
