WE ARE HERE TO INSPIRE YOU
United Health Organization (UHO) operates under the belief that optimal health is the right of all individuals and that knowledge helps provide the tools necessary to obtain that right.
Our mission is to improve the health and quality of life in southeast Michigan through the detection of asymptomatic diseases, health education and community engagement.
We further believe that it is UHO’s obligation to help provide the means to obtain and maintain these goals by offering personalized service, effective screening, educational information and community engagement presented in the most culturally sensitive manner possible.
