The colorful Oklahoma Lions Mobile Health Screening Unit will be located at New Jerusalem Baptist Church, 1715 Wewoka Street, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, to offer free screenings to Muskogee residents for several serious health problems. The screening unit is sponsored by Muskogee Noon Lions Club. The church is also sponsoring a health fair with displays in the church fellowship hall. Volunteers from the church and Lions Club will staff the screening unit.

Lions for a healthy Oklahoma is addressing the most critical health issues in Oklahoma. Free health screenings and information on obesity, tests for glaucoma, diabetes, cholesterol, visual acuity, basic lung function, and high blood pressure are all included. Bone density screening is available, usually for women over 40 years old. Osteoporosis, especially in women over 40 years old, is a critical concern. Glaucoma and diabetes are two of the major causes of blindness and often are not discovered until irreversible damage has occurred. Undetected high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels can be life threatening.

The Lions unit will provide screenings only, not diagnoses. The results will be given to the person being screened to take to his or her personal health care provider.

The church will also hold its Back to School Bash and Youth Explosion at 5 p.m. For information, all Maryland Guidry, 918-310-3485.
