Health Department offers free screenings


The Switzerland County Health Department has announced that it will be holding another screening for cholesterol, diabetes, hemoglobin and blood pressure.

These tests are absolutely free sponsored by a grant from the Health Department, and the department urges everyone to take advantage of this offer.

The event will be held at the health department on Monday, October 19th, from 8 a.m. until noon – or whenever all participants are tested. Two nurses will be administering this program.

This will be a walk-in event, so those wishing to take advantage of the testing do not need an appointment. Anyone having any questions can call (812) 427-3220 for assistance.

It is best that those getting the tests not eat in the morning before the screening, but black coffee is fine.
