MILTON — In May, Sacred Heart Health System will provide free heart-health and osteoporosis screenings for the poor, elderly or uninsured at locations in Pensacola, Milton and Jay. Some locations will provide heart-health screenings, while other locations will be devoted to osteoporosis screenings.
Heart-health screenings will measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol, and can detect anemia. The screenings are helpful in diagnosing conditions that put people at high risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other health problems. Osteoporosis screenings will detect bone density.
