Army Wellness Center offers free screenings as part of ‘Healthy Heart’ month
The Carlisle Barracks Army Wellness Center wrapped up Healthy Heart month by providing the community biometric screenings (resting heart rate and blood pressure measurements) at the Exchange Feb 27. Matt Zlogar, Wellness Center Director, and Dottie Wilkinson provided blood pressure screenings to more than 20 individuals and hope to continue the service on an on-going basis.
“We want to bring awareness to the community and ensure they have access to improve their health and wellness,” said Zlogar. “This allows us to get a snapshot of what our community looks like at a whole and what may be trending with simple things such as resting heart rate and blood pressure. This way, we are able to hone in on what may be more of an opportunity for us (the wellness center) to promote for good health and prevention of chronic disease.”
