WESTERLY — MinuteClinic, the retail medical clinic of CVS Health, is offering no cost “Know Your Numbers” heart health screenings at its location at 151 Franklin St. every Wednesday in February. Other clinic locations in Rhode Island offering the screenings include Wakefield, East Greenwich, Cranston, North Smithfield, Providence and Woonsocket.
During the screenings, patients will learn the five key personal health numbers that can help them determine their risk for heart disease – total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index. No appointment is necessary for the screenings.
The heart health screenings are in recognition of CVS Health’s support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women movement, a national campaign to raise awareness of heart disease and stroke in women and to empower women to take control of their health.
