With over 1,000 encounters and over 200 medical exams, community members were offered lab work, health screenings, smoking cessation information, dental care, eye care, and counseling. The data collected from the event demonstrates the need for such events in the county. Grundy County currently ranks 95 out of 95 Tennessee counties when it comes to health outcomes. The Medical Mission allowed people who would otherwise not have access to physicians and other health care workers to be seen by professionals and receive follow-up care information.
