Military offers free health care at AHMS

Members of the community in need of medical, eye or dental care were given an opportunity to address their needs without fear of costly service charges. Spanning from July 12-22, Marines and Sailors from Marine Forces Reserve and the New Mexico and Pennsylvania Air National Guard are participating in Innovative Readiness Training Louisiana Care 2017.

The IRT Louisiana Care spans three parishes- St. John the Baptist, Assumption, and Tangipahoa. In Tangipahoa, Amite High Magnet School serves as a medical facility. What are normally classrooms and hallways, have been transformed into temporary waiting rooms, examination rooms, and operating rooms.

According to 1st Lt. Kristine Racicot, Marine Forces Public Affairs Officer, medical, dental and optometry services will be provided to members of the community at no cost until July 22.
