    February is American Heart Month, so there’s no better time to give your own heart a healthy boost. With our Heart Health By the Numbers program, learning how to protect your most vital organ is as easy as 1-2:

    Step 1 - Lipid Screening

    February 13 and 14, 7 – 10 a.m. by reservation


    Stop at Portage Health for a FREE five-minute blood screening and quick checks of your blood pressure, heart rate and other health stats. The blood screening is a full cholesterol panel including total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides and blood glucose. Time slots are available from 7-10 a.m. February 13 and 14. To reserve your spot, please email jerkkila@portagehealth.org or call 483-1562. Time slots are limited.

    Step 2 - Presentation by Dr. LeGalley

    February 19, 5:30 p.m.


    Go to the Houghton High School auditorium on February 19 to get your blood screening results. Find out your blood sugar, cholesterol levels, and other valuable information starting at 5:30, and then at 6 p.m. This presentation will help you decipher your numbers and offer tips on how to rev up the health of your heart with changes to your diet and exercise routine.
    Healthy snacks will be provided.
    Everyone is welcome to attend the Heart Health presentation. You do not need to participate in the screenings to attend. If you’ve recently had a blood workup, you can bring those results with you for analysis.
