MARINA, Calif. - Get free health screenings, talk to heart and nutrition experts, meet with personal fitness trainers, and more at the 5th annual “Every Beat Counts” heart health fair from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, February 22 at Community Hospital’s Peninsula Wellness Center in Marina.

Staff from Community Hospital will provide free blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose screenings and interpret the results — a $200 value. There will be “ask the experts” tables, with Richard Gray, MD, and Debbie Sober, RN, both of Tyler Heart Institute, answering heart questions, and clinical dietitians answering nutrition, diabetes, and weight management questions. Information will also be provided about stroke prevention and treatment, quitting smoking, and CPR. Personal trainers from Peninsula Wellness Center will be available to answer fitness questions and provide tours of the center. 

The bloodmobile will be there, collecting blood for use in our community.

For more information, call 883-5660. Drop-in — no registration is required and no fasting is necessary for the screenings.
