Free Biometric Screenings

Description

In honor of Heart Health Month, Hy-Vee, Inc. has partnered with multiple companies and organizations to provide free biometric screenings during the month of February. A biometric screening is a combination of measurements and readings about certain health factors that may help in identifying potential risk factors for chronic diseases or conditions, like heart disease, hypertension or diabetes. The dieticians will collect a blood sample from a finger prick that will be used to determine cholesterol levels, triglycerides and glucose levels. They will take resting blood pressure, measurements of height, weight and waist and calculate body mass index. Screening process takes 15-20 minutes, and all results will be reviewed and received during the screening.
