In celebration of American Heart Month, King’s Daughters is inviting
area residents to attend a special celebration of heart health from 1
to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 26.
King’s Daughters Cardiology will be providing free Healthy Heart
with EKG screenings in its offices – Suite 230, Medical Plaza B, 613 23rd St. The screening consists of checks of total cholesterol, blood sugar,
blood pressure, oxygen levels and a screening EKG. A King’s Daughters
heart specialist will review results of the screening. No appointment
King’s Daughters Tri-State Vascular Specialists, Suite 140, Medical
Plaza B, will be offering the popular Low-Cost Vascular Screening. The
screening consists of ultrasounds of the abdominal aorta (to check for
weaknesses); ultrasound of the carotid arteries (to look for blockages
that could lead to stroke); and an ankle-brachial index study to evaluate
circulation in the lower extremities. Cost for all three screenings is
just $80. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 1-888-377-KDMC.
In addition to the screenings, participants will have the opportunity to
meet King’s Daughters heart team; learn about the benefits of cardiac
and pulmonary rehabilitation; discover the importance of sleep in overall
health; enjoy healthy refreshments; and pick up additional information
and giveaway items.
