St. Vincent Healthcare brings back Living Well

By ALYSSA BARNES

It should come as no surprise that the top three New Years’ resolutions for 2013 had to do with improving one’s health, namely through weight loss, improved physical fitness and kicking that old smoking habit.

In the interest of this continued focus on improving one’s health, St. Vincent Healthcare will be returning to the 2013 Home and Health Expo Feb. 14-16 with a larger exhibit and a number of additional health screening services.

Attendees from previous years will remember the St. Vincent Mobile Mammography Coach, which will once again be on site Thursday and Friday of the show.

In addition to the usual breast cancer screenings, St. Vincent Healthcare will introduce its Living Well program, which will allow expo attendees the opportunity to receive comprehensive health screenings at a substantial savings.

Living Well specializes in on-site health screenings and continued education around identified risk factors. “These days, not many people have the time or energy to find out just how healthy they are,” said Colin Dow, St. Vincent Corporate Outreach Liaison, “Through the St. Vincent Living Well program we are able to give people a great overall snapshot of their health at a fraction of the time and cost.”

The health screening consists of three steps:

Participants are given a risk-assessment questionnaire to determine potential health risks in their lives, such family medical history

Measurements such as biometric blood pressure, height and weight, resting metabolic rate, body composition, BMI and pulse ox are taken to determine the body’s overall condition.

A blood draw is administered and complete blood work-up including lipid profile, metabolic panel and thyroid stimulating hormone test are recorded.

Normally this comprehensive health snapshot report costs $95, but with a coupon Home and Health Expo attendees will pay only $55.

Further testing including Vitamin D, Testosterone, ALC, and Prostate Specific Antigen will be available for an additional charge.

For more information on the Living Well program and to schedule your 15 minute appointment at the Home and Health Expo, call 1-855-277-5563 or go to www.svh-mt.org/living_well.

Living Well health screenings will take place at booth 619 inside the Montana Pavilion.
