The screenings are offered in support of Fit City Kennesaw, a wellness initiative designed to address the increasing rate of obesity among concerns about the health of Kennesaw residents. The overall goal is to help prevent and control obesity and other chronic diseases in children, teens and adults by promoting healthy eating habits and regular physical activity.
Total cholesterol and glucose screenings will be performed via finger stick, with results received in minutes. Blood pressure screenings, BMI and waist circumference measurements will also be provided at no charge.
Fasting is not required. The health data will be strictly confidential and remain between WellStar and the participant.
