Heart Health Fair offers free screenings Feb. 22
Baptist Health Paducah will offer free screenings during a Heart Health Fair from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Feb. 22, in the atrium of Doctors Office Building 2.
Baptist staff will provide free blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol screenings. Fasting and advance registration are not required.
Monitoring risk factors, such as blood pressure and cholesterol, is important in the prevention of heart disease, which remains the nation’s leading killer of men and women.
Baptist Health Paducah is nationally-accredited as a Cycle IV Chest Pain Center with Percutaneous Coronary Intervention, also known as angioplasty. The hospital was the region’s first accredited chest pain center in 2008 and continues to meet the highest national standards for treating heart attacks.
Baptist Health Paducah offers a free, five-minute heart risk assessment at www.baptisthealthpaducah.com/heart and a 24-hour Chest Pain & Stroke Hotline staffed by local nurses at 1.800.575.1911.
