Stop by State of the Heart Hospice for a free heart health screening - February 4

We all know it’s important to take good care of our hearts. “Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women,” said Kelley Hall, State of the Heart Hospice education coordinator. “That’s why we’re encouraging everyone to know their numbers.”

In recognition of American Heart Month, the nonprofit agency is offering free screenings on Heart Health Day – Friday, February 4. Stop by the Greenville office, 1350 N. Broadway, from 8:00-10:30 a.m. to have your blood pressure, BMI, and weight checked. Screenings should last five to ten minutes.

There will also be information available on diet and exercise, cholesterol, and risk factors for heart disease. Red Dress pins from The American Heart Association will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Take the time to learn how to prevent heart disease for yourself or someone you love. For more information, contact Hall at or 937-548-2999.
