Healthy Heart with EKG Screening

About This Event

  • Event Type:Health screenings

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for more than 34 percent of all deaths annually. An American dies of cardiovascular disease every 38 seconds, according to the American Heart Association.

Our free Healthy Heart with EKG screening includes checks of total cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, oxygen and a screening EKG. An EKG is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. It also is used to check the health of the heart, especially when conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes are present.

The screening will take place onboard the KDMC Mobile Health Unit.

Results are reviewed by a King's Daughters health professional. Recommendations for follow up, if needed, are provided. 

Due to COVID-19 guidelines, screenings are by appointment only. All participants must wear a mask at all times and observe social distancing. 

The screening is recommended for persons age 40 and older, as well as younger adults with risk factors, such as diabetes or high blood pressure.
