Police officers to talk personal safety, share self-defense tips

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Who better to teach self-defense than the men and women who protect Jonesboro every day?

Jonesboro police officers will talk personal safety and share self-defense tips from noon until 1 p.m. Friday, Feb. 12, at St. Bernards Health & Wellness, 1416 E. Matthews.

The program is part of St. Bernards’ monthly Lunch & Learn series.

In addition to the lecture, those attending will also receive a free heart-healthy lunch.

Reservations are required by Tuesday, Feb. 9, and can be made by calling the St. Bernards HealthLine at (870) 207-7300.

St. Bernards will also offer community screenings from 7 until 10 that same morning at Health & Wellness.

Residents can take advantage of free screenings for total cholesterol, anemia, glucose, blood pressure, height/weight/bod fat percentage and body mass index.

Additional tests will be available for minimal fees and include full lipid panel (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides) for $8.50; hemoglobin A1C (average blood sugar over 3 months) for $6.50; and PSA (prostate specific antigen) for men 40 and older for $12.50.

Fasting for lab testing is strongly encouraged for 6-8 hours before the lab draw to increase accuracy of test results.
