DANVILLE — Ephraim McDowell Health is sponsoring a free health screening on Nov. 2 at McKinney Baptist Church. The free screenings will be offered from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.

Health screenings that will be offered are cholesterol, glucose, blood pressure, body mass index and stroke risk. Flu shots will also be available. After the screenings are complete, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their results with a licensed health professional.

Participants should not eat 12 hours prior to their screening if they would like to have the blood test that gives them a full lipid panel. This gives the participant detailed information including their HDL, LDL, triglycerides and glucose. Medications except for diabetic medications may be taken with water.
