Georgetown, SC—Georgetown Hospital System’s Community Health Education Department will host a Regional Health Screening on Friday, March 14 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Maryville from 7:30 – 10:30 a.m.

The screenings are designed to provide greater community-wide access to health care resources and information.  In the next year, Regional Health Screenings will take place in Plantersville, Georgetown, Socastee, Maryville and Hemingway at various times.  Each event will focus on different and specific health issues.  The January event will focus on Heart Health Awareness.

Health screenings to be offered include:  Chemistry Panel--$20, CBC w/differential--$20, TSH (Thyroid Screen)--$10, Hgb A1C for Diabetics--$10, PSA for Men--$10 and free blood pressure screenings.  Chemistry Panel tests require a 10-12 hour fast.  Universal medication forms, physician referral services and other health information will also be available.

Although not mandatory, advance completion of pre-registration materials is strongly encouraged. Pre-registration packets for the event are available at the information lobby areas of Georgetown Memorial Hospital and Waccamaw Community Hospital.  Persons who plan to participate in the March 14 screenings should obtain one of the packets in advance, complete it and bring it to the event to expedite the process.
