Butler Health Screenings Free To The Public

The public can take advantage of free health screenings this weekend.  Local college students will also benefit from the event.

Butler University College of Pharmacy and Health is holding a health fair Saturday that is free and open to the community. Blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar and bone density tests will be given by students who will also offer healthy lifestyle advice.

Hanna Corey, student co-chair of the event, says the results will be discussed and patient consulation is also offered.

"We try to target what a specific patient enjoys eating and or what their typical daily exercise regime is," explains Corey, "we try to personalize it."

Anyone interested in cholesterol and blood sugar tests should fast for 10-12 hours before arriving. No appointments are necessary for the screenings, from 8-11 a.m. at the Butler College of Pharmacy and Health Science building.
