In recognition of National Heart Month, Cullman Regional is offering FREE Heart Screenings to the community on February 8 and 22. Visits are by appointment only.

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease accounts for nearly 836,546 deaths in the US. That’s about 1 of every 3 deaths in the US. Cullman Regional’s screenings offer opportunities to check your risk for heart disease and more.

Screenings include the following for all participants at no charge:

  1. Lipid Panel
  2. Body Mass Index
  3. EKG (Electrocardiogram)
  4. Blood Pressure
  5. ABI Screening
  6. Bone Density Screening

“The goal of these screenings is to help community members identify any potential risk factors they may have in order to reduce their risk for heart disease,” said Lindsey Dossey, Executive Director Marketing & Community Outreach. “We want to help our community catch potential risks and get them under control before it becomes an emergency.”
