Nor-Cal Shrine Club to host free screening for children next month

February 21, 2013 by  

In early March, a free screening clinic will be held for children aged up to 18 in Redding to test them and determine if they are eligible for treatment at Shrine Hospital.

Each child at the free screening clinic will be examined by an area heath care professional and receive screening for orthopedic issues and a variety of other ailments. Screenings include cerebral palsy, fractures, rickets, burn scars, scoliosis, club feet, dislocated hips, head injuries, muscles and tendons, sports injuries, back and leg problems, hands, birthmarks, congenital ear deformities, and abnormal skin growths.

Brochure printers might be used at events such as free screenings or other health-related activities in an effort to provide visitors and patients with important information regarding the health and medical issues at hand. Pamphlets and flyers may be printed by local printing companies specifically for these types of activities, as they help raise awareness of the importance of parents keeping up-to-date on their children’s health.

The Shasta Community Health Center is located in Redding at 1035 Placer Street. More information regarding the free screening can be obtained by calling the Screening Clinic Chairman, Monte Fitchett, at 246-4940. He can also be reached via phone at 527-0533 in the Tehama County area and at 1 (800) 237-5055 for those who do not speak English.

The free screening clinic will take place at the Shasta Community Health Center from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 2.
