Ark. providing assessments for Mayflower residents

Posted:

MAYFLOWER (AP) - Arkansas has announced it will provide health assessments for Mayflower residents who have health concerns related to the oil spill of March 29.

The health assessments will be available to affected residents at the Faulkner County Health Unit in Conway beginning Sept. 3.

Appointments are required and can be made by calling (501) 450-4941.

Residents who are assessed will meet with a public-health nurse who will conduct a confidential interview about health concerns and symptoms that may have developed since the spill.

Following the interviews, residents may be scheduled for further evaluations via telemedicine resources with specialists from the Department of Health and UAMS.

Residents will not be charged for any telemedicine assessments conducted by specialists.
