Healthy Heart Screening program
Healthy Heart is a health screening program designed to identify individuals at risk for cardiovascular disease. Ideal candidates for the program are young to middle age adults, especially those who haven't had their cholesterol checked in over one year. The program is not designed to serve individuals who already know their cholesterol level or are under a physician's care for a cardiovascular condition. Suggested screening sites include work sites, schools, churches, and community clubs. Download more information on Heart Health.
