Health Department is Going Red and Offering FREE Screenings to Promote Heart Health

Greenup County Health Department is offering FREE Heart Health Screenings from 8am until Noon Monday, February 6th as part of the national “Go Red for Women” campaign. Both men and women are welcome for these screenings and no appointment is necessary.

The screenings will include blood pressure, weight, body mass index (BMI), blood sugar, and a lipid profile (cholesterol).  No preparation is required.  However, for a more precise reading, it is a good idea to fast for 12 hours prior to your screening.  

Connie Wilburn, nurse administrator at GCHD said, “It is important to know what your numbers are and what they mean, so that you can make lifestyle changes in order to prevent Heart Disease!”

For more information, call (606) 473-9838 or visit www.greenuphealth.com.
