More than 140 people participated Thursday, according to Hays Lions Club member Jim Huenergarde who coordinated the event.
The screenings provide information about blood glucose/diabetes risk, blood pressure, dental health, vision acuity and field of vision, and hearing. The tests are done inside a large air-conditioned trailer in the northwest corner of Walgreens parking lot.
Everyone ages 6 months and up is invited to participate. Screenings are offered until 2p.m. this afternoon.
“We’ll definitely do this again next year,” says Huenergarde. “We were hoping for 100-125 people, and we’re way past that number.”
