KEGLEY, W.Va. (WVVA) - The Lucas mobile lung cancer screening bus made its way to Bluestone Health Clinic Tuesday to offer services to residents.
Patients have to be 50 years and older, and be a current or former smoker to be eligible.
Bluestone Health officials said that there was a 75% turnout rate at Tuesday's clinic.
The Lucas bus is a 48-foot mobile unit afforded through the West Virginia University Cancer institute, and is equipped with state of the art lung cancer screening technology.
The mobile unit travels to 42 West Virginia locations, mostly centered in rural communities. Bluestone Health says that they hope to have the bus back before the end of the year.
