Community Screenings, Lunch & Learn on Urinary Incontinence Set for Aug. 11

St. Bernards will offer community screenings and a lunch and learn on Friday, Aug. 11, at St. Bernards Health & Wellness, 1416 East Matthews Ave.

From 7 until 10 in the morning area residents can take advantage of free screenings for total cholesterol, anemia, glucose, blood pressure, height/weight/body fat percentage and body mass index.

Additional tests will be available for minimal fees and include full lipid panel (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides), $8.50; hemoglobin A1C (average blood sugar over three months), $6.50; and PSA (prostate specific antigen) for men 40 and older, $12.50.

Fasting for lab testing is strongly encouraged for 6 to 8 hours before the lab draw to increase accuracy of test results.

The August Lunch & Learn will focus on urinary incontinence and ways to improve it. Presenter will be Dr. Emma Jacobs with St. Bernards Urology Associates. Scheduled for noon to 1 p.m., it will include a free light lunch.

Persons interested in attending the Lunch & Learn may make reservations by calling the St. Bernards Healthline at 870-207-7300.

Both events will be in the conference room at Health & Wellness.
