Sacred Heart to provide free health screenings in June

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

Heart-health screenings will measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol, and can detect anemia. The screenings are helpful in diagnosing conditions that put people at high risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other health problems. Osteoporosis screenings measure bone density.

Several screenings have already been held this month; following is the remaining schedule for June:

         June 23, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., YMCA, 410 N. Palafox St., Pensacola. Heart-health screenings.

         June 25, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 6451 Park Ave., Milton. Osteoporosis screenings.
