Community Hospital Anderson will offer free health screenings on Friday, March 20 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Diabetes Care Center, located in the lower level of the 1601 building on Community Anderson’s campus. The screening includes a total lipid profile (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglyceride and TC/HDL ratio), glucose and blood pressure. For best results, it is recommended that participants fast prior to the screening for 10 hours with nothing but water. Please be sure to take all necessary medications and drink 8-16 ounces of water prior to the screening. Results will take approximately 15 minutes.
The Hearing Center will also conduct free hearing screenings at the event. They will provide information regarding hearing, hearing loss and tinnitus as well as about the connection between hearing loss and diabetes.
