East Texas Medical Outreach

From June 11-13 Operation Lone Star launched their East Texas Medical Outreach event which offered free  preventative and primary care to uninsured East Texans. Beginning at Tuesday morning and running until Thursday afternoon, licensed physicians and nurses were on site to administer multiple screenings, perform physicals and advise on healthy lifestyle choices such as healthy eating and not smoking.

Operation Lonestar is a collaborative medical services project that unites state and county health and human service agencies, Texas Military Forces, local service groups and volunteers in the largest public health humanitarian effort in the country. Operation Lone Star is a real-time, large-scale emergency preparedness exercise that provides medical service and disaster recovery training to state agencies and personnel while addressing the medical needs of thousands of underserved Texas residents.
