Health Clinics:

The health committee will be able to collect samples for genetic disease testing (GSD, EIC and PRA) through Optimal Selection˜ for curlies present at the specialty this year. The cost to participants will be $75 for CCRCA members. That price has been substantially reduced by a subsidy from Kathie Lester's calendar sales. Preregistration is recommended.
