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

Heart-health screenings will measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol, and can detect anemia.
