There’s never a wrong time to consider the health of your heart.

On Feb. 21, 2019 Bon Secours St. Francis Health System will host its annual free heart screening event. The community event will take place at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena from 7 a.m. -9 a.m.

The event is free and open to the public; no pre-registration is required.

According to the hospital, heart disease is the leading cause of death in South Carolina for both women and men. 80 percent of heart disease can be prevented or managed.

To raise awareness, Bon Secours will provide free screenings that include a full lipid profile, blood pressure, blood glucose, BMI and risk assessment.

*Fasting is recommended for accurate results. Complimentary parking will be available in the VIP lot off of Church Street.
