Hidalgo County, Texas Department of State Health Services and PSJA ISD hosted Operation Lone Star VIP Day Luncheon at the PSJA Early College High School Campus in San Juan.
Operation Lone Star is a public health emergency preparedness exercise, held annually during the last week of July. Operation Lone Star not only helps train our first responders, it also provides vital information to our community on what to expect in the case of a real health-related emergency or other crisis.
This year marks OLS’ 19th year providing free medical services to South Texas residents, including health screenings and treatments, immunizations, student physicals, hearing and vision exams, behavioral health evaluation, and for the first time, dental health exams were offered at PSJA High School.
“This marks Operation Lone Star’s 19th year of providing much-needed access to health care at no cost for our residents as part of this large-scale Emergency Response training,” said Hidalgo County Judge Ramon Garcia.
This luncheon is an opportunity for city, county, school board, state and other officials to get first-hand information on the positive impact Operation Lone Star has on the citizens of the Rio Grande Valley.
