OKLAHOMA CITY – OU Physicians will offer health screenings to the public Monday, April 14th, at its clinic in the Oklahoma City-County Health Department’s NE Regional Health and Wellness Center at 2600 NE 63rd St.

The screenings will be held from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. and will be provided at no cost to participants.

“We want to give people the tools they need to live healthy, productive lives and health screenings are a good start,” said Brian Maddy, chief executive officer of OU Physicians, the state’s largest physicians group. “The screenings are quick and easy and provide valuable health information.  We hope to reach as many people as possible in the communities near the Wellness Center.”

Participants can be screened at no cost for total cholesterol, glucose level, body composition (total body fat and body mass index) and blood pressure/resting pulse.  Health personnel will be available to answer any questions participants may have about their screening results.

To obtain the most accurate health information, participants are urged not to eat the morning before undergoing their health screening.

The screenings are part of an outreach effort conducted by the OU Physicians Community Health Services program.
