South Central Public Health District will hold a free wellness screening from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday, May 17, at The Senior Connection in Hailey.

The screenings will include blood pressure measurements, height and weight assessments, and a full lipid panel to assess cholesterol levels and triglycerides, as well as blood glucose levels and A1C. While attendees are encouraged to fast for eight hours prior to attending, it is not mandatory. Accurate and meaningful results will be provided regardless of fasting status.

A short health coaching session will follow the tests to help people understand their screening results and identify potential risks or areas for improvement.

People will be screened on a first come, first-served basis.

"Regular health check-ups, including blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, and A1C are crucial for overall wellness," said Adria Masoner, Health Education specialist at South Central Public Health District.  "They provide insights into our body's health status and help us take proactive steps to stay healthy and prevent chronic illnesses like heart disease, diabetes & strokes."

Los exámenes incluirán mediciones de la presión arterial, evaluaciones de altura y peso, y un panel de lípidos completo para evaluar los niveles de colesterol y triglicéridos, así como los niveles de glucosa en sangre y A1C.
