La Porte Hospital Mobile Health Unit to visit North Judson Friday


Posted on: February 17th, 2017 by [email protected] No Comments

The La Porte Hospital Mobile Health Unit, made possible by funding from the Healthcare Foundation of La Porte, will visit multiple neighborhoods to educate on two topics that most people think aren’t even related: dental health and heart disease. Some recent studies have shown a link between moderate or advanced gum disease and heart disease risk, as well as a link between inflammation caused by oral bacteria and clogged arteries and stroke. Learn more about this topic and get a free blood pressure screening from 11am–12:30pm on Friday at Bailey’s Discount Center, 5900 S. Range Road in North Judson.
