Routine health screenings

Health screenings save lives. You could have high blood pressure (hypertension) or blood sugar (type 2 diabetes) and not know because there are no obvious symptoms. If any of these risk factors apply to you, visit one of Parkland’s Access to Care and Coverage community hubs to get screened at no cost to you!

You are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure if you:

  • are 40 years or older
  • are African American or Hispanic/Latino American
  • have been diagnosed with prediabetes
