Cardiovascular Screening & Hands-Only CPR Training


Screening to help identify and educate underinsured and uninsured adults at high risk for heart disease, atrial fibrillation (Afib), stroke, peripheral vascular disease (PVD), abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and carotid artery disease. Health professionals will also check Body Mass Index (BMI) and blood pressure, explaining the importance of knowing your health numbers. Cholesterol and diabetes screenings will be offered. You will leave with a plan to improve your health. A 20-30 minute appointment is necessary. Four-hour fasting is necessary for AAA screening. All screenings will be based upon national guidelines. Registration opens on Sept. 1 and is required.

In partnership with the American Red Cross, hands-only CPR and automated external defibrillator (AED) training will also be taught every half hour throughout the screening hours. This is not a certification course.
