Low cost health screenings offered to local residents

Valley View Rotary teams up with Bronston Chiropractic

Local residents had a low-cost way to check their health Saturday.

Bronston Chiropractic teamed up with Valley View Rotary to offer The Health Check 2014.

For a small fee, patients were screened for cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease as well as kidney and liver function. There was also a thyroid check for an additional fee.

Organizers say people with high deductibles often don’t get checked because they can’t afford it.

The screening will help them catch a problem early. “People are trying to take more charge of their health so to understand what’s going on with you, you have more of an opportunity to make better health decisions in the future,” said Leo Bronston from Bronston Chiropractic.

If screeners found  a problem, they followed up with the patient to make sure they were able to find the right doctor to help treat it.
