Testing for Women (available for first 50 women for each test)

  • Cholesterol Screening – FREE (requires fasting)

Heart disease remains the number one cause of death for both women and men, according to the American Heart Association, with one person dying every 36 seconds from heart disease in the United States. To encourage heart health and regular screenings, McKenzie Health System is offering a discounted $75 rate for women’s cardiac scoring plus free glucose and cholesterol screenings for the first 50 women who request it during American Heart Month in February.

Appointments for cardiac scoring can be scheduled by calling 810-648-6110. The glucose and cholesterol screenings do not require an appointment; however, the blood test does require fasting ahead of time. Cardiac calcium scoring measures the amount of plaque built up in the walls of the arteries in your heart. The cholesterol that deposits in the arterial walls becomes calcified, which can be detected by the scan. The glucose and cholesterol screenings require fasting ahead of time.

The $75 cardiac scoring screening, along with the free cholesterol and glucose screenings, are being made possible in part by the McKenzie Women’s Health and Wellness Fund. To learn more about McKenzie Health System, visit www.McKenzieHealth.org.
