|JCPRD, JCHD to Conduct Cholesterol Health Screenings at ATC on Sept. 14|
Do you have a family history of premature Coronary Heart Disease or Diabetes?
Are you physically inactive?
Are you a smoker?
Do you eat too much saturated fat or cholesterol?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, please join us for a Cholesterol Health Screening. This is especially important because high cholesterol has no symptoms!
On Thursday, Sept. 14 from 8:30-10:30 am the Johnson County Park & Recreation District's Athletic Training Center, in conjunction with the Johnson County Health Department, will be hosting a cholesterol screening. The $20 Full Lipid Profile includes total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, and glucose. Confidential results and personal one-to-one counseling are given within five minutes of the test. A 10-hour fast is required. Consume nothing but water. (But please still take medications as directed.)
The Athletic Training Center is owned and operated by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District and is located at 9301 W. 73rd St., Merriam. Please call (913)403-8272 to register for this event.
