Free health screenings will be provided by the Nebraska Lions Foundation’s Mobile Screening Unit (MSU) two days during the Chase County Fair.
The colorful MSU will be on the fairgrounds Wednesday and Thursday, Aug. 12-13, from 1 to 5 p.m. both days.
Free screenings for glaucoma, visual acuity, diabetes, hypertension and hearing problems will be provided.
The MSU will be hosted by the Imperial Lions Club when it’s in town during fair week, and staffed by Lions members and professional medical staff from the community.
Although a screening by the MSU does not provide a complete exam, it can serve as an early alert in detecting conditions which require individuals to visit their doctors for treatment.
The Lions of the state receive strong support from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Nebraska in bringing the MSU to communities throughout the state.
This year marks the 20th year for the partnership between Blue Cross/Blue Shield and the Nebraska Lions Foundation to offer these free health screenings to Nebraskans.
