Delaware County will host Healthy Delaware, an Innovative Readiness Training (IRT) event, July 11 - 19 at the Walton Central High School located at 47-49 Stockton Avenue in Walton, NY. IRT is a federally supported program through the US Department of Defense to ready military personnel for future potential deployment missions nationwide and worldwide. Military units are paired with communities willing to partner with them as a real-world field experience.
Healthy Delaware will provide no-cost medical and veterinary services for the public. There are no prerequisites to participate. Military personnel will offer Delaware County residents health exams, youth sports physicals, behavioral health screenings, eye exams, eyeglass prescriptions, dental exams, cleanings, and extractions. For domestic pets, veterinarians will be available to provide wellness checks, rabies shots, and spaying and neutering. Healthy Delaware will be held as a walk in service to any person wanting to attend, except for the spaying and neutering which will require pre-registration and will be held at the SUNY Delhi Veterinary Hospital lab.
