King’s Daughters is offering a free healthy heart and EKG screening on the KDMC Mobile Health Unit beginning at 10 a.m. Monday, June 25 at Bailey’s Carpet, 158 Gardner Trail, Salyersville, Ky.Kentucky Heart Institute cardiologist Richard Ansinelli, M.D., will review screening results.

The screening, which includes an EKG, total cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and blood oxygen levels, is sponsored by King’s Daughters in cooperation with the Kentucky Heart Foundation. Appointments are required and may be made by calling 1-888-377-KDMC (5362). Fasting is not required.

An EKG is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. It also is used to check the health of the heart, especially when conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes are present.

To be eligible, participants must be at least 50 years of age and not have participated in a KDMC heart/vascular screening in the past 12 months. Additional screening criteria may apply, which allow us to see those at greatest risk for heart disease.
