September is National Cholesterol Education Month, a good time to get your blood cholesterol checked and take steps to lower it if it is high. National Cholesterol Education Month is also a good time to learn about lipid profiles and about food and lifestyle choices that help you reach personal cholesterol goals.
September 11-15, 2017, Rockcastle Regional Hospital is offering free cholesterol screenings from 7 a.m. until 9 a.m. No appointment is necessary. Please fast 12 hours prior to screening. Registration for the free screening will be in the second floor lobby of the Outpatient Services Center. Screening results will be mailed directly to the patient. Patients are then advised to follow-up with their primary care provider to discuss results.
