Thank you to Team Foster for purchasing ADN-Northeasts first 7×16 enclosed trailer that is desperately needed to provide mobile clinics to the community. With the help of Team Foster and the new trailer we will be able to double the number of clinics we offer and be able to provide clinics in multiple states at the same time.
