Everyone benefits from a healthy community. Banner Health’s Community Wellness provides education and encouragement for you, your family, your neighbors and your colleagues to lead a healthier life.
Can I Have Health Screenings Without Going to My Doctor?
Banner Health offers classes and screenings around the community. Most are free or have only a small fee. In addition to wellness screenings, we offer education and support. These offerings change often. Be sure to check back each month for a complete, current list.
Many of our services are offered at the local hospital or at sites in the community. Our goal is help you prevent common health conditions or return you to health with treatment options. Here are some of the screenings and classes we offer:
Blood Pressure Checks
Get your blood pressure checked and recorded in a log so you can share your numbers with your doctor. Checks are free and offered at many locations.
Understand the differences between normal aging and dementia. We offer confidential memory screenings to detect dementia early so we can intervene now.
CT Heart Scoring
This non-invasive test accurately measures the calcified plaque in your arteries. The Heart Score program includes a 10-minute consultation with a Wellness specialist. We focus on cardiac risk factors, non-modifiable and modifiable risks and lifestyle behavior changes.
