Sacred Heart schedules free health screenings
MILTON — During July, Sacred Heart Health System will provide free heart-health and osteoporosis screenings at Santa Rosa County locations for adults who are poor, elderly or uninsured.
Heart-health screenings 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.
Scheduled Santa Rosa screenings:
●8:30 to 11 a.m. July 14 at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 6451 Park Ave., Milton. Osteoporosis screenings only.
●9 to 11:30 a.m. July 28 at St. Ann’s Catholic Church, 100 Daniel Drive, Gulf Breeze. Heart-health screenings.
