Good health is a gift. It allows you to care for your family, earn an income, live an active life, and so much more. To help protect that gift, the Care Center offers health screenings for blood pressure, iron, and glucose. These screenings identify areas where you may be at risk for disease, so you can address any issues before they become serious. As of June 3, the Care Center will expand its health services to include a dental clinic and eye clinic.
Blood Pressure and Glucose Testing Guidelines:
- The care center has volunteer nurses that provide blood pressure screenings during each shift open for food.
- Glucose testing is performed for a $3 charge on the first Monday of every month from 10:00-11:00am.
- To receive health screenings, please bring a photo ID and proof of your current address—this can be your most recent utility bill, lease, mortgage statement, or medical card.
