JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The race is on to St. Bernards Health and Fitness Expo happening April 14 and 15 at the First National Bank Arena.

It's a special weekend dedicated to you and your family's health.

The event features 300 exhibitors, free health screenings, and free educational seminars.

Lydia Parkey from St. Bernards says the student-athlete screenings take place from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday.

"Through some grants, we were able to give EKGs to students going into the 9th grade, though it's not necessary for those younger students to have them, just to check and see if there's any irregularities," Parkey said during an interview on Region 8 News Midday.

Vitals such as blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose can also be tested.
