Shore Health System Brings Health Info to Chesapeake Heart Walk

On Saturday, April 24, volunteers from Shore Health System will be offering health information during the Chesapeake Heart Walk in Terrapin Park in Stevensville.

Heart Walkers will find free information about heart health and cardiovascular fitness; healthy nutrition; home emergency preparedness; and stroke and diabetes risks and prevention. Free blood pressure screening will be provided. Visitors will also find information about the Queen Anne’s Emergency Center scheduled to open in Grasonville this fall.

Cholesterol testing will be available between 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. A lipid profile, which requires a 14-hour fast, will be available for a $12 fee; a basic cholesterol screening with no fasting required will be offered for $5. Cash payment is due at the Heart Walk.
