HAYNEVILLE, Ala. (AP) ' A military program to provide health care in some of the South's poorest communities has treated more than 12,000 people in Alabama in less than two weeks in its latest outing.
The program helps fill a health care gap and this time came to a farming region known as the Black Belt because of its rich, dark soil
Medical teams began seeing patients in the towns of Hayneville, Demopolis and Selma on May 1, and officials say the 250 or so specialists have been swamped since then. They come from the Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve and Navy Reserve.
Officials say many of the health problems they're seeing are related to obesity, including high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, rotting teeth and failing eyes
The program concludes Thursday.
