CULLMAN – In recognition of American Heart Month, Cullman Regional will offer free heart disease screenings to the community on Feb. 7, 14 and 28.  Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

Do you have high cholesterol? Do you have high blood pressure? Does your family have a history of heart disease? If so, schedule your appointment today by calling 256-735-5600. The screenings will take place in Cullman Regional’s Colonel Cullmann Room, located in Professional Office Building 2 (1912 Alabama Highway 157, Cullman, AL 35058).

According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease accounts for nearly 836,546 deaths per year in the U.S. That’s about 1 of every 3 deaths in the U.S. Heart disease remains the no. 1 cause of death in the country. Cullman Regional’s screenings offer opportunities to check your risk for heart disease and more.

Screenings include the following for all participants at no charge:

  • Lipid panel
  • Body Mass Index
  • EKG (electrocardiogram)
  • Blood pressure
  • ABI screening
  • Bone density screening

“The goal of these screenings is to help community members identify any potential risk factors they may have in order to reduce their risk for heart disease,” said Lindsey Dossey, vice president of marketing & community outreach. “We want to help our community catch potential risks and get them under control before it becomes an emergency.”
