All News RSS Feed Health Friday, February 16th, 2024

It’s a statistic that catches many by surprise…more Americans die because of heart disease than those who die from all types of cancers combined.

It’s also one of the driving forces for a cardiovascular screening event happening on Saturday at Lake Regional Hospital.

“Where we can help. Do some free screenings. We can do blood pressure, BMI. We also can draw labs. We have a lipid profile and cholesterol. Just trying to help people reduce their risk for heart disease.”

Elizabeth Bax, Education Coordinator for Lake Regional, says the cardiovascular screenings will take place tomorrow morning in the third floor conference rooms from 7:30-10:30.

Space is limited and you need to register.
