One of the candidates running for the Aruba Parliament has sponsored a mobile health clinic. It’s built into an old VW bus and here’s a look at it:
Dig that groovy health bus, man. Anyway, the bus traveled around the island during the past month. At each stop, people were offered free services like blood pressure screenings, cholesterol checks, and advice on diabetes. This was a great idea, a good way to meet the people, and a very creative method of campaigning. My hat’s off to this guy. Here’s another look at the bus.
Given the big healthcare debate in the US, if I was running for office, I’d sponsor one or two of these things to drive around my district. The Aruba election is September 25, 2009. Good luck to everyone.
