Pensacola, Fla. -

During August, Sacred Heart Health System will provide several free heart-health screenings in Pensacola, Century and Orange Beach, Ala. One location will be dedicated to bone-density screenings. These screenings will be held inside the facilities listed below.

Heart-health screenings measure blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol and can detect anemia. These screenings are helpful in diagnosing conditions that put people at high risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes and other health problems. Bone-density screenings aid in the detection of osteoporosis.
