The city of Kennesaw is partnering with WellStar to offer a free biometric health screening event for residents today from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Ben Robertson Community Center.
The screenings are offered in support of Fit City Kennesaw, a wellness initiative designed to address the increasing rate of obesity and concerns over the health of Kennesaw residents. Total cholesterol and glucose screenings will be performed with a finger stick, with results received in minutes.
The center is at 2753 Watts Drive, Kennesaw.
The city will also have a blood drive today from 2 to 7 p.m. at the Ben Robertson Center. Most healthy people who are at least 17 years old and weigh at least 110 pounds are eligible to donate blood every 56 days.
