Lourdes and Guthrie are teaming up to provide free health care for area residents on Saturday, October 22 from 8:00 AM until 3:00 PM at the Owego Elementary School, 2 Sheldon Guile Boulevard in Owego. The event is based on a first come, first served basis and will offer free medical services and financial counseling for those who visit.

This is the third year Lourdes has offered such an event and this year Lourdes has teamed up with Guthrie to provide even more opportunities for patients.  In the past two years Lourdes has held the event in Binghamton.
