There will be a free blood pressure and oxygenation screening in September at Eastview Mall to help detect the early signs of heart disease.
UR Medicine cardiologists will be on hand to perform the screenings and answer questions. We’re told doctors and nurses will also demonstrate how the body's blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels change and impact the body using "Sim Man," a computerized mannequin designed for education. Participants will receive tips for improving their heart health.
The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 13.
