The “Know Your Numbers” program provides a low-cost way for people to learn their total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and blood glucose numbers. Participants are required to fast for 9 -12 hours for the test. Participants will also have their blood pressure measured as part of the process. Testing will be performed by the Pomperaug Health District Public Health Nurse, Sandy Weinberg, RN at the Health District office in Southbury.
Brief counseling will be offered – no one will walk away without understanding what their numbers mean. Educational materials will also be provided. The cost for the testing will be $30 for residents of the Pomperaug Health District towns and $35 for non-residents.
The program will be offered the first Thursday of every month from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM.
