Thanks to the Joint District/USEP Insurance Committee, Health Fair, and several area hospitals, insured employees and retirees will have the opportunity to get four essential cardiac tests for free at locations convenient to their worksites.
The tests include an echocardiogram, a 12-lead EKG, an Artery Stiffness analysis, and a Carotid Artery Ultrasound. The screenings take a half hour and are conducted in a secure, private exam room on-board Health Fair’s mobile screening bus.
The tests are aimed at employees age 40+ with one or more known risk factors for heart disease or stroke. Click here for theÂ flier for more information.
