Hospital to offer free health screenings

In celebration of National Hospital Week, Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital will offer free health screenings.

The screenings will be Thursday, May 15 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the BWWMH Main Lobby. The free check up will cover blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol, body mass index (BMI) and varicose veins.
