Sacred Heart to Provide Free Health Screenings in February 2016 for Poor, Uninsured

Posted: 12/23/2015

During February, Sacred Heart Health System will provide free heart-health screenings at locations in Pensacola and Cantonment for adults who are poor, elderly or uninsured. One location will provide free osteoporosis screenings.

Heart-health screenings will measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol, and can detect anemia. The screenings are helpful in diagnosing conditions that put people at high risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other health problems. Osteoporosis screenings measure bone density.

Feb. 2 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Deliverance Tabernacle, 1780 W. Detroit Ave., Pensacola. Heart-health screenings.

Feb. 11 from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at St. Monica's Episcopal Church, 699 S. Hwy. 95A, Cantonment. Heart-health screenings.
