During February, which is American Heart Month, Premier Health will offer free cardiovascular screenings that help identify the risk for heart disease.
“Regular screenings are important because they may help to find risk factors in the earliest stages, when they can be treated appropriately,” said Dr. George T. Broderick Jr., a cardiologist with Premier Health Associates. “The treatment could include lifestyle changes and medications, as determined by the physician.”
The heart screenings will be available at the following locations and times:
- 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Feb. 13 at Atrium Health Center Mason, 7450 Mason-Montgomery Road, Mason, second floor, Center for Women’s Health and Wellness
- 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 23 at Atrium Medical Center, Professional Building, One Medical Center Drive, Middletown, fifth floor, Auditorium A
Premier Health’s screenings will include blood pressure testing and non-fasting fingerstick readings for total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), and blood sugar.
Walk-ins will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis, but participants with appointments will be given priority. Call 866-608-3463 to schedule a screening appointment.
