MDM Healthcare Sponsoring Women’s Heart Connection

MDM Healthcare Sponsoring Women’s Heart Connection April 16, 2011, at Jacksonville Public Library Downtown presented by Baptist Health

Free Screenings and Testing to Be Provided by Baptist Health Professionals

Heart disease is the number-one killer of women in America, affecting one out of every four women. Baptist Health has partnered with the Sister to Sister Foundation for four years in organizing a free yearly Heart Health Fair for our community. Though Sister to Sister will not be involved this year, Baptist Health is continuing this important service with the newly created Women’s Heart Connection, a health fair that will test, screen and educate women about heart health.

The Women’s Heart Connection, a free screening and health fair presented by Baptist Health, will take place on Saturday, April 16, 2011, from 9 am until 4 pm at the Jacksonville Public Library Downtown.

This event will offer free heart disease screenings with immediate results and counseling; medical, nutrition and stress-reduction experts; and cooking and fitness demonstrations.

A Bone Density Risk Assessment, pulse oximetry test (related to sleep disorders) and Walking/Running Shoe Clinic also will be offered at the event, free of charge.
Registration is recommended to plan for staffing for the free screenings. To register for this free event, please call The Callaghan Agency at 904.246.7494. Online registration will be available
