Geisinger’s Department of Cardiology will host a free hunters’ screening clinic from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 9, at Geisinger Healthplex CenterPoint, 1201 Oak St., Pittston.
For those with risk factors for heart attack and stroke, a strenuous and adrenaline-inducing hunt can trigger a health emergency. By evaluating their heart health and teaching them how to reduce their risk factors, the screening clinic aims to help hunters have a safe and healthy season as they enjoy an activity that’s a way of life for many Pennsylvanians.
The clinic will offer:
• Blood pressure, heart rate and cholesterol testing
• Joint mobility assessments
• Education on and screening for chest pain, peripheral vascular disease, sleep apnea and stroke
Representatives from the Pennsylvania Game Commission, American Heart Association and Geisinger Health Plan will also be in attendance.
Registration is preferred by calling 570-808-3651, but walk-ins are also welcome.
For more information, email Cynthia Roadarmel, D.N.P, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
