Free health screenings in September from Mountain Family Health Centers

Mountain Family Health Centers will be conducting free health screenings throughout Garfield County in September, starting this week on Sept. 5 at the Glenwood Springs Mall in West Glenwood.

The clinics are open to the public and offer assessment of risk factors that, when checked regularly, can help prevent serious health conditions from developing, according to medical experts.

Free screening includes cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar levels, body mass index, and a heart disease risk assessment.

For participants to prepare for the clinics, fasting is Ideal, but not required, and no appointment is necessary.

Area businesses may also arrange for free screenings at a workplace for employees or customers.
