Hy-Vee Dietitians to Offer 2,000 Free Omega-3 Index Screenings in June

Additional events will be held throughout the month to promote Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month

May 30, 2024 | News & Press Releases

Hy-Vee, Inc. announces today that it will provide 2,000 free omega-3 index screenings during June at select Hy-Vee stores throughout its eight-state region as a part of Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month.

Omega-3 fatty acids are essential to the body as they support a healthy heart and brain. They also work to lower cholesterol, specifically triglyceride levels. The omega-3 index screening measures the amount of omega-3 in the bloodstream and can help identify risk factors.

An omega-3 index screening is administered via a simple finger stick. A few weeks after the screening appointment, individuals will be contacted by their local Hy-Vee dietitian to set up an appointment to go through their results and discuss steps that can be taken to improve their omega-3 levels. The follow-up visits can take place in person, by phone or virtually. Registration is required for the free omega-3 index screening and can be made online. Once registered, a local Hy-Vee dietitian will reach out to schedule a screening based on availability. Omega-3 index screenings are only available while supplies last and are provided in partnership with GOED, Nordic Naturals and the Alzheimer’s Association. A list of Hy-Vee locations offering the screening can be found below.

Hy-Vee dietitians will also be offering the following events throughout the month:

Free Dietitian Discovery Session

Individuals can jumpstart their health journey by scheduling a complimentary discovery session with a Hy-Vee registered dietitian to learn about the services available and choose the right program for their wellness journey. Discovery sessions are offered virtually, by phone or in person, and also available in Spanish.
