Ball State program to offer blood pressure, cholesterol testing
With September being National Cholesterol Education Month, one Ball State program is offering medical testing open to the public.
Ball State’s clinical exercise physiology program will hold a blood pressure and cholesterol screening 6-8 a.m. Thursday, at the Human Performance Lab, according to an email from Ball State’s Marketing and Communications.
The test will include measures of high-density lipoprotein, low-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, blood glucose and indicators of liver and kidney function, the email states.
People wishing to be tested must fast for 10 to 12 hours prior to the test and are encouraged to drink water only before arriving for the tests, it states. The test costs $20 and results will be sent to participants within five business days.
Becky Collins, administrative coordinator of the clinical exercise physiology graduate program, said the event is open to everyone who wishes to be tested.
Collins said they will hold another round of tests sometime in February 2020.
