The HEART Team from the MLK Health Center and Pharmacy returns to Coushatta later this month to offer a Women’s Health Screening Event. HEART is an acronym for Health Education Awareness Response Team.
The July event offers free cardio checks that will include blood glucose and Lipid Panel test. Mammograms will be available to insured and uninsured women 40-years and older who have not had a mammogram within the past 365 days.
A registered dietitian will be at the event to offer nutrition counseling. A Registered Nurse will be on site to give you an explanation of the results from the cardio checks and mammograms.
As an incentive, a $10 gift card will be given to everyone completing their screening tests. And there will be other prizes as well.
These important health screenings will be offered to women in the parish on July 24th. The event will be held at Christus Coushatta Health Care from 8:00 am until 2:00 pm.
The HEART Team has been conducting regular events in Coushatta for nearly a year. Their next event is scheduled next month. They will be participating in the Health Fair at Open Door Fellowship on August 11th.
