Western Kentuckians Benefit from Military Health Care

Licensed medical professionals in the military are offering free medical care to western Kentucky residents.  The Paducah Sun reports the program ‘Innovative Readiness Training’ provides medical screening, non-emergency medical treatment, minor lab tests, optometry exams, and free glasses.  The program will begin taking patients next week in Mayfield.

 It wrapped up a deployment in Martin Tennessee on July 17th where more than 32 hundred patients received services.  The mission is part of a partnership with the Delta Regional Authority and the Department of Defense.
