Uhrichsville, Ohio - Trinity Hospital Twin City’s Community Outreach Department will be hosting a community health screen this Friday, December 14th, from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Mako's Market (240 East Third St).

Free blood pressure checks will be offered, and blood tests to measure total cholesterol and glucose levels will be available for $10 per person. This regular monthly health screen also includes measurements of HDL, LDL, and triglycerides for no additional charge.

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.

For $5 more, health screen participants can also 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.  A 10-12 hour fast is required for the blood tests, and participants are encouraged to continue drinking water while fasting.  For more information, call 740-922-7450, ext. 2124.
