Trinity Hospital Twin City’s community outreach department will host a health screen on Friday, Oct. 12 from 7:30-11:30 a.m. at Mako’s Market, 240 E. Third St.

Free blood-pressure checks will be offered, and blood tests to measure total cholesterol and glucose (sugar) levels will be available for $10 a person.

This monthly health screen also includes measurements of HDL (the good cholesterol), LDL (the bad cholesterol) and triglycerides for no additional charge.

For $5 health-screen participants can receive a Hemoglobin A1C screening, a blood test that measures blood-sugar levels over three months. A1C screenings can reveal how well a person is managing his/her diabetes.

No appointment is necessary to participate in the health screen.

A 10- to 12-hour fast is required for the blood tests, and participants are encouraged to continue drinking water while fasting.

Blood glucose tests are recommended for all adults who are overweight and/or have other risk factors for diabetes. Cholesterol checks are recommended for all adults at least once every five years or sooner as directed by a doctor. Participating in regular health screenings is one of the best ways to detect medical problems early.

For more information call 740-922-7450 ext. 2124.
