Health community tour is passing through Fort St. John, and giving residents a chance to find out about their own health status. As part of the day, registered nurses will be on hand to offer free health screenings for adults, including cholesterol screening, diabetes screening, blood pressure tests, body mass index tests, and so on. And the end of the process, participants will be given a personalized health passport, along with some counseling for how they can improve their own well being. Gloria Kufsner is a registered nurse with the health heart society of BC – she says these heart evaluations take no more than half an hour.

The event will run at Centennial park from 10 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday, though Kufsner advises those looking for a free health screening to come early as there may be a high demand. The Healthy Heart Society of BC says almost 70 per cent of participants in this program plan to seek medical advice and / or make lifestyle changes, as a result of their experience with the tour.
