Metroplex Offers Free Screenings for Women
Metroplex Health System is hosting its 4th annual Women’s Health Day on Sunday, October 27.
The event will be held in the hospital’s main conference room at 2201 S Clear Creek Rd in Killeen from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature free health screenings, healthcare exhibitions and informational materials and a cooking demonstration.
Women’s Health Day is free to the public and no appointments will be taken for screenings. Light refreshments and door prizes will be available.
Screenings to be offered include bone density, body mass index, blood pressure checks and total cholesterol and glucose screenings. Presenters will provide information on hearth health, breast imaging and other topics relevant to local women, many of whom tend to put their family’s health needs ahead of their own.
“So many times women are the caregivers for their family and they make sure everyone else is healthy before they care for themselves,” Metroplex Wellness Coordinator LaToya Ellis said in a press release. “This even puts the focus on health topics that are important to women and helps them stay educated about possible health problems. Hopefully we can help them catch problems before they become difficult to treat.”
