St. Joseph Offering Free HeartScore Test

Because February is heart awareness month, St. Joseph is offering a FREE cholesterol and blood glucose screening this week. The test includes HDL and LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, blood glucose, a cardiac risk rating and a blood pressure reading – essentially, a heart score.

HeartScore will be offered at St. Joseph Healthy Communities and the St. Joseph Rural Health Clinics in Lexington, Caldwell, Centerville, Franklin, Hearne, Madisonville, Normangee and Somerville.

Appointments are available 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., February 21 – 25.

To ensure accurate readings, participants need to fast for 12 hours before the test. When you call, please ask for instructions.

To schedule an appointment, please call the St. Joseph Healthy Communities office at 979-731- 1231.
