    The US Department of Defense in partnership with Delta Area Economic Opportunity Corporation (DAEOC) hosted Operation Trident Innovative Readiness Training (IRT). This clinic provided medical, dental and optical services to residents (ages 2 and up) who were uninsured, underinsured or in need of quality care at NO COST to the patient. No proof of insurance or identification was needed. University of Missouri Extension in the Southeast Region provided an exhibit table each day during this event. This was a good opportunity for us to be in a controlled environment where we could inform people in the community about our programming. In order for us to successfully serve the community, we have to let them know about us, and this was a great opportunity to work with our community partners.

    Military healthcare providers saw a total of 1,337 patients during the effort, which kicked off on June 14. Healthcare providers performed a total of 11,964 medical, dental, optometric and other healthcare procedures during the mission, with a total estimated value to the community of $1,359,920.
    While the primary purpose of the mission was to conduct deployment and readiness training for military personnel, incidental to military readiness training, the DAEOC Tri-State IRT teams provided healthcare services to assist local authorities in addressing underserved and unmet community health needs.
