The screening was free to the public, and helped inform the tested individuals of  possible issues that were detected by the screening mobile unit.
The Kansas Lions Clubs join forces to make this possible to the public every year at the Kansas State Fair. The Lions acknowledged the students of the Hutchinson Community College Nursing Program, who helped with the screenings.
