Free health screenings

Sacred Heart to Provide Free Health Screenings in April   During April, Sacred Heart Health System will provide free heart-health screenings in Pensacola, Cantonment and Jay for adults who are poor, elderly or uninsured. One location will provide free osteoporosis screenings.   Heart-health screenings will measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol, and can detect anemia. The screenings are helpful in diagnosing conditions that put people at high risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other health problems.
