Participating clinics across the U.S. provided free head lice screenings and treatments this past weekend valued at more than $60,000
SALT LAKE CITY, (April 18, 2019) – Lice Clinics of America®, the world’s largest network of urgent care clinics for lice treatment and prevention, helped families find eggs of a different kind during the organization’s fourth annual Great Lice Egg Hunt. On Saturday, April 13, at select clinics throughout the U.S., Lice Clinics of America provided an estimated 1,100 free head lice screenings and treatment services worth more than $60,000, using the clinic’s fast and effective AirAllé technology.
“Hosting our annual Great Lice Egg Hunts each year is a fun way for us to help remove the negative stigma of head lice and provides us an opportunity to dispel myths about how head lice spread,” said Dr. Krista Lauer, medical director of Lice Clinics of America. “In addition to providing free services, families were educated about the lice life cycle, how they spread, and the best prevention and treatment options available to them.”
Lice Clinics of America’s annual Great Lice Egg Hunt demonstrates the company’s commitment to helping families, schools and organizations prevent and treat lice in the most convenient and effective ways. Lice Clinics of America, with 330 clinics in 35 countries, exclusively offers the FDA-cleared AirAllé medical device treatment that kills lice and 99.2 percent of their eggs in as little as one hour without harmful pesticides.
“We are grateful to the clinics across the network who contributed to this worthy cause,” says Claire Roberts, CEO of Lice Clinics of America. “Our fourth annual Great Lice Egg Hunt provided an opportunity to give back to the communities we serve by providing an estimated 1,100 free head lice screenings and treatment services, so no one’s Easter gets spoiled by finding “unwanted eggs” in their children’s hair. The service we provide is an incredible value to anyone we serve, but the fact that we can impact the lives of those who may not be able to afford this level of service is remarkable.”
