Healthy Lifestyles event Sunday, March 28 at Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church
The first of an entire year of community events throughout the state offering free health screenings will be hosted this weekend in Indianapolis by Managed Health Services (MHS).
From noon to 3 p.m. Sunday at Emmanuel Missionary Baptist Church, located at 4958 Ribble Road, MHS’ Healthy Lifestyles event will offer blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol screenings. All screenings, in addition to an array of health- and wellness-related educational information, will be offered at no cost to those who attend.
“The screenings we will be offering are critically important as part of taking charge of overall healthcare maintenance and routine,” said MHS CEO Patrick Rooney. “MHS encourages everyone to have these screenings performed annually and take the necessary steps with their primary healthcare provider to treat any conditions needing attention or management.”
MHS staff will be available Sunday to provide information about the Hoosier Healthwise program, a healthcare program available to Indiana residents throughout the state. MHS will also be coordinating health-related giveaways for attendees of all ages throughout the event.
