Zanesville, OH (June 9, 2014) – The Genesis Black Lung & Respiratory Health Clinic is offering a free Coal Miners Health Fair on Thursday, June 19. The health fair is open to active or retired coal miners or anyone who’s ever been exposed to coal dust through employment.

The screenings include respiratory, blood sugar, blood pressure/stroke awareness, DermaView skin screenings, body fat analysis, grip strength testing and more. A nurse practitioner will be available to review screening results, and representatives from the Department of Labor will also take applications for black lung benefits and answer questions.
