Free health screenings
The Sutherlin Lions Club and the Blackberry Festival Committee co-sponsored use of an Oregon Lions Sight and Hearing Mobile Health Screening Unit from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Blackberry Festival, 150 S. Willamette Street, Sutherlin.
Operated by the Lions, the MHSU will provide free vision, hearing, blood pressure and glaucoma tests. A diabetes test is also available, but requires a 3-hour fast. Local adults and children can participate in a screening to be alerted to one of these health problems.
