State Health Centers to Offer Free Health Assessments

HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Health Secretary Dr. Calvin B. Johnson today invited Pennsylvanians to take advantage of free health assessments being offered in medically-underserved areas of the state from today until Sept. 21. The free health services are available in conjunction with "Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day," which is observed on Sept. 18.

"Nearly 800,000 Pennsylvanians lack health insurance and a recent Department of Health survey found that 11 percent of Pennsylvania adults opted not to go to the doctor when they needed to in the past year because they couldn't afford it," said Dr. Johnson. "Governor Rendell is committed to making health care affordable and accessible for all Pennsylvanians and 'Take a Loved One to the Doctor Day' is just one way in which we can make that happen."

Participating State Health Centers will offer in-person health assessments, blood pressure screenings, body mass index calculations and other health education information.

Call 1-877-PA-HEALTH to find out where and when free health assessments will be offered in your area. For more information on Governor Rendell's Prescription for Pennsylvania health care reform initiative and Cover All Pennsylvanians, visit http://www.rxforpa.com/
