NORWICH – While most of our schools are busy hosting summer instruction or simply shut down for the mid-year recess, a spin down Midland drive around Norwich High School in the City of Norwich looks like something out of an episode of MASH.
For the second year in a row, the Chenango United Way in concert with the U.S. Department of Defense has brought the Greater Chenango Cares Innovative Readiness Training into the heart of Chenango County.
Greater Chenango Cares is a 10-day health outreach initiative that offers no cost medical, dental, optometry and veterinary care for children and adults across the region at no expense to patients. With medical and veterinarian staff recruited from all over the U.S., the mobile heath clinic is an example of the U.S. military’s speedy deployment of reservists.
As early as last week, trucks loaded with cargo and freight containers, generators and medical supplies began rolling onto the Norwich high school campus.
