WALLA WALLA — On Thursday, from 8-11 a.m. and 3-7 p.m., the YMCA will host a free “heart check.”

Representatives from Walla Walla General Hospital, Providence St. Mary Medical Center and Walla Walla Community College will help the Y provide the following services: blood pressure, cholesterol and blood glucose checks; and body fat and BMI testing.

A nutritionist will be present to provide nutritional information and answer any questions. There will also be heart-healthy snacks.

Heart disease and stroke are an epidemic in the U.S. today. The good news is that many of the major risk factors for these conditions can be prevented and controlled.
