The presentation looks at your personal health numbers. Free health screenings will be offered to check cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
Just in time for a chocolate-laden Valentine's Day comes a presentation that might make you think twice before you take a bite of that sinfully delicious fruit of the cacao tree.
"Take Control of Your Health-Know Your Numbers" will be presented at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 13, in Hilltop Hall at The Village at St. Barnabas, 5850 Meridian Road, Gibsonia.
Representatives from the Center for Pharmacy Services of Duquesne University will discuss the importance of knowing your personal health numbers of total cholesterol, triglycerides, body mass index, good cholesterol, bad cholesterol, and blood sugar.
Following the presentation, free health screenings will be offered to check cholesterol, blood sugar and blood pressure levels.
Duquesne University Center for Pharmacy Services' presentation is part of St. Barnabas Medical Center's monthly Doc's Talk series, in which health-care representatives share information with St. Barnabas residents and the public.
Reservations are not necessary. For more information, call (724) 443-7231.
