DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - February is American Heart Month and to raise awareness, Premier Health is offering free heart screenings. The point of the screenings is to identify any risk factors that can lead to heart disease.

The risk factors include high total cholesterol, high blood pressure and high blood glucose. Doctors say regular screenings can catch the risk factors early, giving patients a jump-start on treatment. If you're interested in a screening, you don't have to make an appointment, but if you are a walk-in, it's on a first-come first-serve basis. You can call CareFinders to schedule an appointment at 1-866-608-3463.
