Project Healthy Living to be Held March 16 to May 14th
Date:3/10/2009

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The 30th annual PROJECT HEALTHY LIVING, sponsored by WXYZ-TV/Channel 7, and the United Health Organization will be held Monday, March 16 through Thursday, May 14 at more than 20 sites in the City of Detroit and the six metro Detroit counties. Project Healthy Living provides free or low-cost health screening tests to individuals 18 and older. Free tests at all sites include blood pressure, height and weight, vision, glaucoma, health hazard appraisal, and counseling and referral.

Tests offered at all sites for a minimal handling fee include blood panel -- 25 tests for diabetes, thyroid, liver, HDL, and bone and kidney disease, among others -- as well as prostate, colorectal and ovarian cancer, and HIV. Special tests offered at selected sites include oral/dental screening, skin cancer, and breast exams. In addition, hs-CRP, a new blood test, is being offered. CRP is a C-reactive protein blood test that can be used to determine the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attack or stroke.

Once again, Project Healthy Living is targeting young adults ranging from the ages of 18 to 40 years old. Many sites will offer a variety of tests that focus on this age group including: bone density test, body composition, and cardiovascular screening.

Information on specific sites and tests is available from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday-Friday, through the Project Healthy Living Hotline, 313-531-9108, or online at www.projecthealthyliving.net

More than 2,000 volunteers and 300 partners will assist in the delivery of Project Healthy Living services. Each year over 600,000 screening and counseling services, valued at over $6 million, are administered through the project.
