Premier Health Offers Free Heart Screenings

DAYTON, OHIO, January 28, 2016 – During February, American Heart Month, Premier Health will offer free cardiovascular screenings. The key to managing heart and vascular disease is managing risk factors such as high total cholesterol, high blood pressure, and high blood glucose.

“Regular screenings are important, because they may help to find risk factors in the earliest stages when they can be treated appropriately,” said George T. Broderick, Jr., MD, FSCAI, FACP, FACC, cardiologist with The Premier Heart Associates. “The treatment could include lifestyle changes and medications, as determined by the physician.”

Premier Health’s screenings will include non-fasting finger stick screening for total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), blood sugar and a blood pressure reading.

The screenings are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointment is needed at screening locations except for the Feb. 17 event at Upper Valley Medical Center. The heart screenings will be available in the following locations:
