Services include health fairs, cooking demonstrations, weight loss programs, nutrition presentations, health screenings and immunization clinics. Call to discuss program ideas and fee information.

Blood Pressure Screening
High blood pressure usually has no symptoms, but increases your risk for serious problems, including heart attack and stroke. Regular screenings can help you find and treat high blood pressure early.

Personal Metabolism Screening
Your metabolism determines how many calories your body burns each day. Our FDA-approved MedGem device measures your metabolism with a simple breath test. The results provide the information you need to meet your weight management goals.

Blood Glucose Screening
The easiest way to test for diabetes is a random blood glucose test. The test requires a small finger prick to draw a drop of blood, and the results are available immediately.

Cholesterol Screening
Get quick and accurate results for your total, LDL and HDL cholesterol, triglycerides and blood sugar. This is a simple finger-prick test and results are available in five minutes. For accurate results, please fast for at least 8 hours prior to your appointment.
