MARYSVILLE — Stephenie Headings, with the unchecked excitement that only a 7-year-old could muster when facing a few hours of medical exams, asked the same questions time and again.

Rebekah Headings laughed. “Do not worry,” she told her youngest of four daughters as she corralled them via a free health-care clinic Saturday morning. “You’ll get to go in there, too.”
The Headingses, a household of six, were among those who visited the Ohio National Guard’s GuardCare, an annual clinic presented every summer or fall in a different medically underserved community in the country in partnership with the Ohio Department of Health and local health departments.
This weekend, GuardCare is visiting the Union County Health Department, 940 London Ave. at Marysville; a similar event was held in Madison County last weekend. The program continues from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday and no appointment is essential.
Anyone can make use of the services offered. No proof of income, insurance or residency|insurance, income or residency|insurance income or residency|residency, insurance or income is required. That’s not what GuardCare is about. It’s about training. And so much more, said Maj. Gen. Mark E. Bartman, adjutant general of the Ohio National Guard.
