Article by: Laura Inlow, lgriffith@lc.edu
GODFREY – The Lewis and Clark Community College Mobile Health Unit (MHU) is making a stop in Calhoun County this month to give adult citizens free dental exams and x-rays.
 
The MHU will be parked at the University of Illinois Extension office, 818 South Park St. in Hardin, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, June 20 and Thursday, June 27. 
 
Adult residents of Calhoun County, ages 18 and over, will be eligible for free dental exams, x-rays and cleanings. These services are free of charge for those who sign up while space is available. Extensive follow-up services may require follow-up visits on Lewis and Clark’s Godfrey campus.
 
The MHU has been operating under a grant received in 2008 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (Health Resources and Services Administration), and is staffed by area dentists, dental hygienists, L&C faculty and students enrolled in the dental programs. 
 
This event is being made possible by a contribution from the Calhoun Community Foundation, L&C and the University of Illinois Extension Office.
