Health District offering free cholesterol tests in September

The Health District of Northern Larimer County is offering free cholesterol tests to residents of the district in September, National Cholesterol Education Month.

The test, which typically costs $15, includes results for total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides and blood glucose, as well as a blood-pressure check and interpretation of test results by a registered nurse. Appointments are recommended. Walk-ins will be accepted as space allows.

The district encompasses the northern two-thirds of Larimer County and includes the cities of Fort Collins, Timnath, LaPorte, Wellington and Red Feather Lakes. A complete list of screening dates and locations is available at www.healthdistrict.org/heart or by calling the Health District at 970-224-5209.
