Community Screenings Set for Friday, Oct. 13

St. Bernards will offer community screenings on Friday, Oct. 13, 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.

Screenings will be in the Health & Wellness conference room.
