Community Health and MobileMed

Peter Lowet is the Executive Director of Mobile Medical Care (MobileMed), a nonprofit community health center. With several fixed site and mobile clinics, MobileMed delivers primary care to thousands of disadvantaged Montgomery County residents annually. Even with the ACA (Obamacare), disparities in healthcare access persist. In recognition of our success in addressing the needs of the community’s medically underserved, MobileMed was designated a Federally Qualified Health Center in 2015. The organization relies heavily on the financial, volunteer, and outreach support of the community.
