Health Screenings

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAFor over 20 years, JASC has hosted health screenings once a year for all ages 18 and over. Blood pressure, blood screening tests, and advice on nutrition and other health- and fitness-related topics are offered.  A doctor is on hand to offer further consultation and advice.

The basic screening is a blood chemistry test that will screen for diabetes; cholesterol; liver function; kidney function; electrolytes including potassium and calcium; iron; and blood counts. This test typically costs $100-200 when performed in a doctor’s office.

General health information will be available on cancer, mammograms and cardiovascular conditions.  In addition to the Basic Screening test, tests for Prostatic Specific Antigen, Heliobactor Pylori-IgG, and Glycohemoglobin will be offered.

Check the Calendar for specific dates and information on all Health Screening costs or call 773-275-0097 ext. 228.
