Free Coal Miners Health Fair June 22

Zanesville, OH (June 16, 2016) – The Genesis Black Lung Program is offering a free Coal Miners Health Fair Wednesday, June 22, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Coshocton County Senior Center. The health fair is open to active or retired coal miners or anyone who has ever been exposed to coal dust through employment.

The Coal Miners Health Fair provides an opportunity for people in the community to obtain free screenings and possibly detect health problems that might otherwise go unnoticed. The screenings include respiratory, blood sugar, blood pressure/stroke awareness, 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.

The Coshocton Senior Center is located at 201 Browns Lane, Coshocton. Registration is not required. For more information, call the Genesis Black Lung Program at (740) 454-4063.
