Get a Hy-Vee health screening

February 6, 2019

Hy-Vee will provide free biometric screenings at its locations across eight states during the month of February. Appointments will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.

In Rochester, the free screenings will take place at these times and dates:

• 7 to 11 a.m. Feb. 26 at 500 Crossroads Drive SW

• 7 to 11 a.m. Feb. 27 at 500 37th St. NW

• 7 to 11 a.m. Feb. 28 at 4221 W. Circle Drive NW.

February is Heart Health Month. The screenings will take place inside Hy-Vee’s Healthy You vehicles at shop locations.

Biometric screenings include finger prick tests to check cholesterol levels, triglycerides and glucose levels. The administrator will also take blood pressure, height/weight/waist measurements, and calculate BMI, to try to determine any chronic disease risks.

The entire screening should take 15-20 minutes, and results will be received during that time.

A full list of screening dates and locations can be found at Hy-Vee.com. Each screening will come with a Heart Health bag including coupons, educational materials, and samples.
