Veterans Memorial Hospital Community and Home Care Allamakee Public Health began offering monthly free blood pressure check clinics all around Allamakee County in June. Nurses from Allamakee County Public Health visit each library in the county once per month to take a blood pressure reading. Blood pressure results are recorded on a log card given to all visitors to bring back each month so their next results can be logged. These blood pressure clinics have been successful and will continue, as originally established, on these recurring days:
Lansing 1st Monday of the month 9:45-11:45am
Postville 3rd Monday of the month 9-11am
Harpers Ferry 3rd Wednesday of the month 9-11 am
New Albin 4th Monday of the month 2-4pm
Waterville 2nd Tuesday of the month 2-4 pm
Waukon 4th Monday of the month 10 am-Noon
All blood pressure checks are complimentary. For more information, please call Veterans Memorial Hospital Community and Home Care Allamakee County Public Health at 568-5660.
