Healthy Heart Month to be celebrated with complimentary blood pressure screening

By Staff | Jan 29, 2010

The Sanibel Fire District will offer complimentary blood pressure screening as part of February’s Healthy Heart Month at the Sanibel Recreation Center on Monday, Feb. 1 from 9 a.m. until noon.

High blood pressure increases the risk of stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease and even blindness in some cases. The Sanibel Fire District’s complimentary screenings are offered as a first step in determining if further examination by a health care professional is necessary.

The Sanibel Recreation Center is located at 3880 Sanibel-Captiva Road. Daily, weekly, semi-annual and annual memberships are available.

For more information, call the Rec Center at 472-0345 or visit www.mysanibel.com.
