Jonesboro hospital screens patients as far as Missouri

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - A hospital wants Region 8 residents to get informed on matters of the heart.

The heart event took place at the NEA Baptist Hospital Thursday.

It offered an opportunity to the public to participate in a variety of health screenings involving blood pressure, cholesterol, glucose, triglycerides and even EKGs.

James Geohagan, of Kennett, said he found the information very helpful.

"A lot of good information," Geohagan said. "I appreciate that because at my age and all, I need all the information I can get."

This event was free and open to the public.

Around 160 people attended.

They hope to hold this event each year.
