Community Outreach Overview
TMC’s vision is leading the way to a healthy community. One of the ways we are fulfilling this vision is through our Community Health Education programming. These initiatives are aimed at improving the area’s health by encouraging people to take steps to prevent and manage chronic disease. Whether working to develop better nutrition and eating habits, coaching on healthier lifestyle choices or facilitating screenings and workshops, TMC’s interactions in the community are always aimed at providing long-term solutions for improving the community’s health.
Community Health Education
The Community Health Education team, in conjunction with the Kansas City Public Library, holds monthly mini-health fairs at various library branches providing glucose, cholesterol and vision screenings, as well as experts to answer health-related questions. In addition, the team also attends health fairs throughout the urban core, spreading the word about health and wellness.
Liberty Fruit Produce Market
The Liberty Fruit Produce Market provides fresh produce and other healthy foods to patients, employees and community residents. The market is open at the following times:

The Mobile Market is an extension of the produce market held each Wednesday at Hospital Hill, only this one is on wheels. It travels throughout the urban core, where quality food sources are sometimes scarce, on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week.
