health screening, cayman islands(CNS): The Cayman Islands Health Services Authority (HSA) is observing World Health Day on April 7 by offering free health screenings for blood pressure and blood sugar at all District Health Centres: George Town General Practice, Faith Hospital, Cayman Brac and Little Cayman. The free screenings will be offered between 9am and 1pm from April 7 through April 11. Dr. Kiran Kumar, Medical Officer of Health, says the free health screenings are part of the key strategies of the Public Health Department to emphasise the benefits of healthy lifestyles and early detection of health issues such as hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes, which will enable appropriate treatment in preventing the complications.
 

No appointment is necessary during this week.  Persons seeking testing need to indicate to the registration clerks that they would like to register for free blood pressure and blood glucose screening. The results are available right away and counselling and referral will be offered as deemed necessary.
 
Further information can be obtained by contacting Therese Prehay at the Public Health Department on 244-2632.
