St. Francis Mobile Health Unit to Hold Heart Health Screenings At Library in Arcadia

The Bienville Parish Library is pleased to be partnering with St. Francis Medical Center Mobile Health Unit on May 17 and May 18 at the Bienville Parish Library – Arcadia located at 2768 Maple Street, Arcadia, Louisiana 71001. The Mobile Health Unit will be scheduling Heart Health Screenings for $25.00 for anyone who is interested in obtaining a great baseline of their heart health. The Spirit of Healing Mobile Health Unit will screen participants using the following tests or medical measurements:

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Ultrasound
  • Ankle Brachial Index
  • Blood Pressure
  • Body Mass Index (BMI)
  • Carotid Artery Ultrasound
  • EKG (12 lead)
  • Peak Systolic Velocity

These screenings do not replace regular visits with your primary care physician or specialist. Screenings of this nature are helpful and should be used as a way to draw your attention to any potential heart health issues. The Mobile Health Unit will be stationed at the back parking lot between the Arcadia Main Library and the old Bienville Parish Courthouse for the two days the Mobile Health Unit is scheduled. There will be plenty of parking spaces available to accommodate visitors participating in the screenings.
