§16-25-1. Legislative findings.
The Legislature finds that tuberculosis, diabetes and the condition of high blood pressure are diseases which are latent in nature and have symptoms and effects which are not easily recognizable by the members of the public, while at the same time these diseases and conditions are very serious and often fatal if not diagnosed and treated in their early stages. The Legislature also finds that if mobile laboratory testing were to be made readily available to the public, the hazards created by such diseases to the health of those suffering therefrom may be lessened or prevented by early detection or treatment. The legislative purpose of this article is to provide for adequate testing facilities for the detection of such diseases.
