ACP participates in Healthy Heart
In promotion of American Heart Month in February, the Appalachian College of Pharmacy partnered with Appalachian Family Care, Buchanan General Hospital, and Medical Park in sponsoring health screenings for the public. This event was held on February 12, 2011 from 7:00 AM - 12:00 P.M. at the Food City in Vansant, VA. The free services included fasting blood glucose testing, diabetic hemoglobin A1C testing, body composition analysis, vital signs, diabetes and nutritional education. Additionally, blood work, including cholesterol and complete blood counts, and bone density scans were offered for a nominal fee of $15.00 each. There were a total of 76 patients who took advantage of these services, gaining a total of over $6,500.00 worth of health care. We would like to extend a special thank you to the sponsors that helped make this event possible: The Appalachian College of Pharmacy, Medical Park Pharmacy, Appalachian Family Care, Buchanan General Hospital and the various organizations at ACP. Thank you!
