Nice Turnout for Sunday Health4Cast Event at Downtown Church

Penn State Health St. Joseph hosted a packed house for a bilingual community health education and health screening event at St. Joseph’s Parish in downtown Reading recently.

The 37 HEALTH4cast participants were eager to have their blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol and BMI screened to help assess their health and measure their risk for heart attack and stroke. Several also took the FIT 150 pledge to improve their physical health. Parish staff and St. Joseph Medical Center staff worked together to make the event a success.

“The HEALTH4cast events are a great way to live out our mission and values in a way that has tangible results,” says Susan Sullivan, vice president, mission and ministry. “At the same time that we are helping the community get healthier, it’s a great opportunity to make residents aware of our downtown campus and the services available to them.”
