On Saturday, January 11th, UCPS Latino Outreach and Novant Health provided free cardiovascular health screenings to the Monroe community. Novant Health was able to provide on-the-spot results on a variety of measurements. Novant measured participants for:
Body mass index (BMI)
Cholesterol (total, good, bad)
Diabetes risk (A1C)
Afterwards, participants were provided relevant information and resources on how they could modify their habits to improve their cardiovascular health.
A special thank you to Dr. Vague, who provided food bags for participants.
