Heart Cart Screenings Available Tuesday

The Heart Cart will make a stop in Plymouth on Tuesday from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET at IU Health Primary Care at Lifeplex.

Those wishing to be tested for abnormal heart rhythm, abdominal aortic aneurysm, blood pressure, fasting cholesterol and glucose levels, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, poor leg circulation, stroke and weight should pre-register for these screenings by calling 1-800-235-6204 ext. 2626. The screenings are provided in part by the Starke Health Fund of the IU Health Foundation.

Testing can be completed for $50. This is considerable discount as these tests normally cost over $1,000. You may pay with cash, check, money order or credit card and insurance will not be billed. Payment must be made at the time of the service.

The American Heart Association recommends a baseline screening as early as the age of 20. Those with a family history of heart-related diseases could benefit from this screening.
