Prevention Screenings for Heart Health

Screenings are an excellent way to check your risk for certain conditions or diseases, before symptoms begin. Be proactive by taking preventive steps to find out your risk today. Prevention costs less than medical intervention and it could save your life. Call 877-CENTEGRA (236-8347) to learn more about these life-saving screenings.
