Crouse Hospital is providing free heart health screenings for adults this Friday, June 10, as part of the SouthSide Community Health Fair at the Boys & Girls Club, 212 VanBuren St. in Syracuse. The event runs from 4 to 7 p.m. Additional free healthcare screenings include lead testing for children six and younger; anonymous and confidential HIV testing; and opportunities to make appointments for free cancer screenings.
Free food, live music, giveaways and raffle prizes – including an iPad 2 – are all part of the event to raise awareness of health issues our community faces. The event is sponsored through a grant from the Central New York Community Foundation. For more information contact Reverend Colette Matthews at 315/476-3737.
Heart health screenings include readings for total cholesterol, glucose levels, blood pressure and a personal risk profile. No fasting is required, and results are received in approximately 15 minutes. The results are reviewed with a Crouse hospital healthcare provider.
Crouse Hospital is dedicated to promoting community health and one of the most important aspects of that is providing free screenings to give each individual a chance to learn about their own personal health.
