Having children is one of the greatest joys you'll ever experience. Watching them grow and experience new things is hard to put into words and is just something you have to witness on your own. Of course, being a parent also brings a nearly constant concern over their health. Kids who seem perfectly healthy one moment could show signs or symptoms of an illness or some other deeper condition the next. If you or someone you know has a child dealing with a physical condition you need answers for, the Hadi Shrine in downtown Evansville is giving you a chance to hopefully have those questions answered during a free children's health screening later this week.

Hadi Shrine Hosting Free Child Health Screening on Saturday, October 21st

The Shrine will have doctors on-site at the temple on the corner of Walnut Street and Riverside Drive in downtown Evansville from 9:00 AM until Noon this Saturday, October 21st. According to our media partners at Eyewitness News, the screenings are open to children under the age of 18 and doctors "will check for a wide range of conditions including skin disorders, spina bifida, palate scoliosis, cleft lip and issues with bones, skin or joints."

Walk-ins are welcome and no appointment is necessary. If a doctor determines there is an issue requiring additional screenings and testing, they will refer the child to a Shriner's Children's Hospital for further evaluation, transportation to which will be provided by the Shriners at no additional cost to the child's family.
