Gardner Lions Club members are worried about the community’s health. That’s why the civic organization will host the Kansas Lions Mobile Screening Unit at the Johnson County Fair.
The unit screens for blood sugar, blood pressure, visual acuity and field of vision, and hearing.
The service is free and assists residents who may have difficulty traveling for health screenings.
The unit will be on the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Gardner from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Aug. 9 and Aug. 10.
The mobile screenings are funded by a five year, $100,000 grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas Foundation. The local Lions Club is funded through donations.
