OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. – The YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City is partnering with OU Physicians to provide free health screenings to the community. Screenings will begin on January 10, 2014 and continue for several months.

“At the Y, we know that fitness and well being are so much more than just working out,” said Angela Jones, Director of Health and Wellness Initiatives for the Y.  “That’s why the Y is proud to team up with OU Physicians to offer a variety of screenings to our members and the public.  It’s just one more way we can help our community live healthier lives.”

Participants can be screened at no cost for total cholesterol and glucose profile, height/weight/body fat analysis and blood pressure.

There will be a physician present to go over results with patients and answer any questions they may have.

Fasting is encouraged for the most accurate results, but if participants begin to feel shakiness or dizziness, they are encouraged to eat before the screening.

Black coffee and water consumption will not alter results.

All screenings will be held 8-10 a.m. on the following dates:
