HEALTH & HOUSING - The Alex is a not-for-profit community health and housing organization that has been active in Calgary for over 40 years. One of their primary objectives is to provide supports and services to vulnerable youth. An example of this work are the three mobile health clinics of it's Mobile Health Program: a Community Health Bus, a Youth Health Bus, and a Dental Health Bus. Each unit is staffed by a team of professionals that visit a number of sites across the city on a weekly basis to provide free medical, dental, and supportive services. The following video features the Youth Health Bus during a visit to a local school.
