The International Heart Institute of Montana presents its annual Heart Expo on Saturday, March 2, from 7:00 a.m. to noon at Providence St. Patrick Hospital.
Whether you’re a health care provider or a member of the community, this is a great opportunity to learn about heart health, get diagnostic tests for nominal fees and meet experts from the heart institute.
Here are five reasons more than 1,000 people flock to this event each year.
- Admission is Free
You can’t get into your doctor’s office for free, but admission into the conference center puts you in the company of cardiac surgeons, cardiologists, imaging specialists, nurses and researchers.
- Screening Exams are Just 5 – 10 Bucks
Screening exams for prostate cancer, thyroid function, blood sugar levels, and blood fats and glucose will be available for nominal payments. Payment must be made by cash or check and accurate results require fasting for 12 hours before the tests. (You may continue to take your medications and drink water.) Refreshments will be available.
