Press Release

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.

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.
