Free Health Screenings at a Corner Store Near You

The Food Trust provides health screenings at select corner stores at the same time each month through partnerships with local health care providers as part of their Heart Smarts program. Participants are screened for blood pressure, given weight checks, and are offered healthy lifestyle counseling, referrals and resources, including information on smoking cessation.
