St. Bernards Will Sponsor Lunch & Learn and Community Screenings on Friday, Dec. 12

St. Bernards will sponsor a Lunch & Learn on Friday, Dec. 12, that will focus on seasonal disorders.

The program will be presented by Dr. Eloise Weeks, psychiatrist with St. Bernards Behavioral Health and the St. Bernards Counseling Center.

To include a free heart healthy, diabetic friendly light lunch, the program is scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. in a conference room at St. Bernards Health & Wellness, 1416 East Matthews Ave.

Persons interested in attending must register by calling 870-207-7822 or by emailing jwharton@sbrmc.org by Tuesday, Dec. 9.

From 7 until 10 in the morning on the same day, St. Bernards will offer free screenings at Health & Wellness. Those will include total cholesterol, anemia, glucose, blood pressure, height/weight, body fat percentage and body mass index.

Additional tests will be available for minimal fees. Those 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 program is presented by St. Bernards Healthcare and Genentech.
