BEIRUT: In an effort to serve some Lebanese regions that are deprived of adequate medical services, the LAU Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury School of Medicine and the LAU Medical Center–Rizk Hospital have put in place a Mobile Clinic Service.

Health workers will be touring the towns and villages of Lebanon to provide good health awareness, medical consultations, and care as well as medical and laboratory tests for all those in need.

The clinic will be offering Free PCR testing for patients suspected of the viral infection. With the assistance of governmental hospitals, the PCR testing will be free of charge for patients who are not covered by any kind of insurance, social security or those who cannot afford it.

The inaugural trip of the LAU Mobile Clinic took place on Saturday, April 4 and visited the Nabatieh Governmental Hospital to help assess their capabilities in testing COVID-19 patients using the PCR techniques and helping defeat the virus.

Subsequently, the LAU Mobile Clinic will move to other locations in order to reach all the Lebanese and help them in their fight against coronavirus.

The mobile clinic initiative is supported by many donors including Mersaco, the Czech Republic Embassy, GE healthcare, GME and Feel the Beat campaign of Majid Al Futtaim.
