The Wellness Van is coming to Isanti July 7

The Isanti Lions Club, in partnership with Mercy & Unity Hospitals, is offering a free health screening. The health screening will be held July 7 during Rodeo Jubilee Days at the Isanti Community Center from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Area residents can have their blood pressure taken, and have their blood drawn by fingerstick to determine non-fasting total cholesterol, HDL, HDL ratio and glucose.

After a short period of time each participant has an opportunity to review their results with a health professional. Recommendations will be given on ways to maintain or regain a healthier life. If necessary a referral to a physician will be suggested for further testing or treatment.

The Wellness Van is a co-project of District 5M7 Lions/Lioness and Mercy & Unity Hospitals. The van is staffed by nurses and lab staff from Mercy & Unity Hospitals. Mercy Hospital in Coon Rapids and Unity Hospital in Fridley, are part of Allina Hospitals & Clinics, a non-profit network of hospital, clinics and other health care services.
