LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

 In celebration of heart month, Woodland Heights Medical Center is encouraging everyone to get their heart checked.

 

Starting next week they'll be hosting free screenings at the Woodland Heights Affinity Center.

Heart disease remains America's biggest killer taking more lives than accidents and cancer combined, according to the American Heart Association. 

 Next week screenings will show patients their risk level for developing heart disease.

Director or Marketing Jennifer Stevens says each screening takes about 10 to 15 minutes.

"Heart disease symptom can be hidden if you're not taking your blood pressure on a regular basis or your cholesterol or glucose on a regular basis. This is an easy way, come on out make an appointment and we'll do it quickly for you," said Stevens.

The screenings will start next week from 7:30 am to 9:30 am

They are free and open to the public but you will need to call and schedule an appointment ahead of time.
