Free health screenings given to homeless during winter outreach

One group in Amarillo was encouraging folks to stay healthy this Saturday, especially as the winter season closes in.

The folks at the Guyon Saunders Resource Center wanted to be sure everyone had access to some form of health care. The group hosted it's winter outreach today at the center the promote health during the winter. The free health fair provided numerous screenings for those in our community who may not otherwise have access to them.

"For individuals who are experiencing homelessness, or those who are at risk in our community, I think it's really important that they become aware of what all is available to them," said Meredith Rowley, Outreach Coordinator. "The mission of the resource center is to guide people in the direction of self-sufficiency, and to improve the quality of lives by meeting basic needs."

Some of the basic screenings provided included blood pressure checks, flu shots, dental and hearing screenings, eye care, HIV testing and even children's health services.
