The federally funded effort supporting free asbestos screenings for the residents of Libby Montana is coming to an end. September 19 will be the last day for residents in Libby to receive a free screening through the MASSA (Montana Asbestos Screening and Surveillance Activities) program. The initiative began in 2003 and has provided approximately 4,500 lung tests in Libby.

The screenings can help discover early signs of an asbestos-related disease. If you have not been screened, additional resources may be available through The Libby Asbestos Medical Plan.
