However, many people are still unaware of how and where to apply for consultation, examination, treatment or whatevei might be indicated. Several staff members from the Mason City center have been invited to attend the meeting. They will describe the services available, conduct a question and answer period and furnish all possible information on the activities and resources of the center.
