Free health screenings at Cambridge Chiropractic

Cambridge Chiropractic Clinic has teamed up with Cambridge Medical Center to offer adults a free health screening from 6:30-8:30 a.m. Oct. 30 at Cambridge Chiropractic Clinic. The screening takes approximately 30 minutes and registration is required. Call 763-689-2462 to secure your spot.

The screening will check participants’ blood pressure, pulse, cholesterol, blood sugar, and body mass index (BMI).  From there, participants will be given recommendations and resources for setting up a wellness plan, including follow-up care, goal-setting, and free wellness coaching.

This screening is a part of the Healthy Communities Partnership (HCP) program. Over the last few months, the HCP team at Cambridge Medical Center has been working with local businesses and individuals to conduct over 290 free health screenings for adults throughout the community.

“Our goal is to get our communities healthy,” said Darcy Rylander, Program Coordinator.

In addition to the free health screening, Cambridge Medical Center’s website offers an interactive tool called ‘Family Health Manager,’ which allows all community members to register and take a free online health risk assessment.

“The assessment gives participants an overall health score between 1 and 100 and rates the user in 10 key areas,” Rylander said. “When completed, the user will see what they’re doing well, and where they need to improve.”

It also includes goal-setting tools and recommendations to improve their wellness score.

Cambridge Chiropractic Clinic offers a variety of other integrative health and wellness services.

“This screening is another way to take care of and provide support for the people in our community,” said Dr. Art Volker. “We want to share this resource with as many people as we can.”

The Healthy Communities Partnership (HCP) is a project in 13 cities throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin to help community hospitals develop capacity in preventing chronic disease. Co-sponsors are Allina Health and the Penny George Institute for Health and Healing.
