WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (Aug. 31, 2022) — Hy-Vee, Inc. announces today that it will provide 1,000 free biometric screenings at select Hy-Vee stores throughout its eight-state region as part of its “Meet Your Metrics” tour during National Cholesterol Month.

Hy-Vee’s dietitian team will administer the free biometric screenings to customers at more than 60 Hy-Vee store locations. Appointments will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. Please contact the participating Hy-Vee nearest you to schedule an appointment.

A biometric screening is a combination of measurements and readings that may help in identifying potential risk factors for chronic diseases or conditions such as heart disease, hypertension or diabetes. The dietitians will collect a blood sample from a finger prick that will be used to determine cholesterol levels, triglycerides and glucose levels. They will also take resting blood pressure, measurements of height, weight and waist, and will calculate body mass index.

The entire screening process typically takes 15 to 20 minutes, and all results will be reviewed and received during the screening.

The following organizations helped make the screenings possible: Siete, Alaskan Seafood, National Watermelon Board, GFit, Vitamine and Performance Inspired. Each person who receives a screening will be given a Heart Health bag that includes samples, coupons and educational materials.
