§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.
