We’re pleased to announce that as part of our commitment to serve caregivers in our community we will offer convenient, on-site, confidential health screenings at no charge to you. Health screenings will take place during the conference but space is limited so be sure to sign up for your screening upon arrival at the Summit. A health screening is a great assessment tool to determine your current health status. We know that caregivers frequently neglect their own health to care for others. Your health screening will include:
- Total Cholesterol
- Total Cholesterol / HDL Ratio
- Glucose (Diabetes)
- Blood Pressure
- Measured Height & Weight
- BMI and more
