Harrisburg, PinnacleHealth teaming up to offer free health screenings

The City of Harrisburg is teaming up with PinnacleHealth to help people gain control of their health.

On Thursday, a nurse from PinnacleHealth will host a wellness talk in the atrium of the City Government Center from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It’s called “Know Your Numbers.” It will focus on the importance of knowing your blood cholesterol, pressure and sugar levels.

PinnacleHealth will also have a kiosk to provide brochures, fact sheets and information on health services that are available in the region and blood pressure and cholesterol checks will also be available.

Residents with low or no insurance are encouraged to participate and if a follow-up is recommended, PinnacleHealth officials will provide options for those who may not have a doctor or healthcare coverage.
