Residents get health screenings in Savannah

More than 45 residents received medical screenings hosted by the Cayman Heart Fund in Savannah last week.

The free cardiac health checks were done at Savannah United Church, and Heart Fund Program Coordinator Sue Rajah said the event was a success.

“For many, it is the first time being screened or finding out that they may be at risk of developing [cardiovascular disease],” said Ms. Rajah.

Residents were given a chance to know their numbers when it comes to their blood pressure, body mass index, waist circumference, blood glucose, cholesterol and HbA1c Doctors, nurses and St. Matthew’s University student doctors carried out the testing and discussed results with patients.
