Aug. 20, 2002 – Employees of the Legislature on St. Croix were treated to a house call Tuesday: Lorilei Plaskett and Carol Azille from the Frederiksted Health Care Inc. conducted a free health-screening clinic to check blood pressures.
The screening was part of activities to celebrate National Health Care Center Week, said a release. The program continues with a diabetic screening at the Frederiksted Health Center Wednesday and at Sunny Isles Shopping Center from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. The Saturday clinic will also offer free immunization to the first 100 children.
The clinic at the Legislature was judged a success, from the number of employees who came to be checked. Employees were also given booklets on the importance of regular health screening for diabetes, high and low blood pressure.
