Free health screening offered

Free health screening for senior citizens will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Wednesday, October 10, at the Letcher County Senior Citizen Center, located inside the Letcher County Recreation Center. The screening, sponsored by Faith Moves Mountains, will offer Appalachians in Control (AIC) diabetes testing, blood pressure check, height weight and waist circumference measurement, and body mass index.

Diabetes self-management classes will be offered free at the Senior Citizen Center as part of a University of Kentucky research study. Selected participants will be compensated for some portions of the research, and must be 18 or older with no plans to move outside the county within the next two years.
