    LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. – At Lakeside High School here, the Marines of 4th Medical Bn. and their sister services will create a medical and dental clinic to address the health concerns of a community in need this July.
    The Delta Wellness Innovative Readiness Training program, lead by the Air Force Reserve, will provide general medical check-ups, optometry, dental, mental health, and dietary services here and in Lake Providence, La., and Greenville, Ms.
    “It is a grand gesture to our community to have all of these medical things taken care of; eye glasses, dental work, and other general medical concerns,” said Linda Armour, principal and alumna of Lakeside High School. “I think it is wonderful for everybody, no matter what caliber of wealth you are in. This truly is for everybody and I think that’s wonderful.”
    This week has been one of preparation and logistics as the service and community schools hosting the clinics come together one last time before opening the temporary clinics.
    “We are very proud of our facility and the military’s planning with our facility has been great coordinating for our community’s needs,” Armour said. “And it’s never too early to get the word out.”
    The team is hoping that word spreads as many of the areas inhabitants live well away from city centers and lack the resources to obtain care.
    “We are in an area where we have a lot of medical situations where people really can’t get to doctors as easily as the people in nearby Little Rock let’s say,” said Armour. “It will definitely benefit those who need glasses or medical assistance and there’s no excuse to not take advantage of it.”
    Services will be provided at Lakeside High school, Greenville High School, and General Trass High School July 9-17.
