Military Provides Health Screeings in Norwich

Kathy Whyte/WNBF News

Chenango County Cares is hosting an Innovative Readiness Training event July 13 through the 23 that provides training for military service members to prepare them for their missions while offering free medical and veterinary services for anyone who wants it.

Chenango County director of planning says each day from 8 a-m to 5 p-m at the Norwich City School District High School, military members, assisted by volunteers, will have stations set up to provide free dental, medical, optometry and veterinary services with no cost.

There is no residency, insurance or income requirements.  Most services can handle walk-ins, but appointments are needed for dental inspections, cleanings, fillings, fluoride treatments, sealings, extractions and other procedures and for veterinary vaccination and spay/neuter procedures.

Appointments can be made at (607) 337-1643. 

Medical services include screenings for diabetes and high blood pressure with information on nutrition and pain management while the Optometry services include prescription single focal glasses manufactured on site, testing for glaucoma and cataracts.

After the event, organizers say referral information and educational materials will be given out.

Information can be found at the Chenango County Chamber of Commerce website: and click on events or on the Greater Chenango Cares facebook page.

While IRT provides important medical services for communities, like Chenango County where there is a serious deficit of doctors per residents, the session sare actual medical training programs for active members of the military.
