Know Your Numbers screening at Trumbull Health Department

The Trumbull Health Department, now located at 335 White Plains Road, will be hosting a free Know Your Numbers screening on Monday, Oct. 26. It will run from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., and is open to all residents of Trumbull. The clinic operates on a “walk-in” basis, so you do not need to call ahead to schedule an appointment.

According to The American Heart Association, people have no way of knowing they have high cholesterol or high blood pressure without being tested. The Health Department, in collaboration with The St. Vincent’s Parish Nurse Program and Fairfield University RN students, will be offering free screenings at the clinic in an effort to encourage members of the community to “Know Your Numbers.”

The clinic will screen for blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI), fasting blood sugar, and cholesterol. In addition to the screenings, the staff will provide additional information on diabetes and heart health.

Parking is available on site. For any additional information, call 203-452-1030.
