Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital will be conducting free cardiovascular disease screenings as part of an initiative to prevent heart disease. These free cardiovascular disease screenings will test for risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Stroke awareness education materials will also be provided. The next screening will be held on Tuesday, October 29, from 10 am to 12 noon at Parkway Community YMCA (1972 Centre Street, West Roxbury, MA 02132). No appointments are necessary but screenings are performed on a first come, first served basis.
