Health Screenings With YMCA & Duquesne University School Of Pharmacy At Homewood-Brushton YMCA
The Duquesne University School of Pharmacy will offer FREE blood pressure, glucose, carbon monoxide and cholesterol screenings every other month at the Homewood-Brushton YMCA every other month starting Saturday, January 25 at 2 p.m. These events will be open to the public and are expected to be a safe place for anyone looking for health and wellness information.
Once screened the participant will be referred to a program, doctor or other health resource that fits that person's needs. For example the YMCA will offer participants entry into the biabetes prevention, smoking cessation or blood pressure self-monitoring programs while pharmacy students and faculty preceptors will help them connect with a local primary care physician or other health care providers and resources.
