The University of Tennessee Medical Center is hosting its annual HeartWise community health fair on Saturday, February 9, from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
According to the CDC, About 610,000 people die of heart disease in the United States every year. That makes heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.
The fair gives people in the community an opportunity to have screenings and get educational information, so they will understand their risk for heart disease, vascular disease, pulmonary disease and stroke. That includes blood pressure, BMI, cholestorol, glucose, EKG and more.
Two of the screenings have costs assosicated with them. Comprehensive cardiovascular screening is $35 and cardiac calcium scan is $99.
Registration is required by calling (865) 305-6970.
