Hazard clinic offers free heart screenings

HAZARD, Ky (WYMT) - February is heart month and health professionals want to make sure your heart is healthy.

In Hazard...the Mountain After Hours Clinic held heart disease screenings on Monday. Folks that stopped by could get their blood pressure and cholesterol checked for free.

Family Nurse Practitioner Denise Kilburn tells WYMT this is just the first of several similar events scheduled throughout the month.

"The clinic as a whole has really taken on the roll of prevention. We want to prevent things before we have to treat them and just making a healthier community," said Kilburn.

If you missed the event on Monday, you have three more chances:

February 11, 2014 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Mountain Clinic of Carr Creek, Sassafras
