PITTSFIELD, MA — 2nd Street will host the Community Health Programs (CHP) Mobile Health unit on Wednesday, February 28 from 1-3 pm.

  • Same-day urgent care

  • Blood pressure checks
  • Treatment of minor sickness, infections and injuries
  • UTI & STI testing and birth control services
  • Wellness checks, including food security and nutrition assistance
