   Registration will begin at 8 AM each day and will conclude at noon on Friday, June 6th.
 This program not only provides quality health care to uninsured East Texans, it also promotes healthy living by educating participants on healthy eating, physical fitness, living a healthy lifestyle free of tobacco use and following the advice of your doctor after each yearly checkup.
