September is National Cholesterol Education Month. To observe this, a free cholesterol screening sponsored by Rolling Plains Memorial Hospital will be held on Thursday from 8:30-11:30 a.m. at the Sweetwater-Nolan County Health Department, located at 301 E. 12th in Sweetwater.
Cholesterol can play a critical role in a person's health. It's important that all people know what their cholesterol level is and how it affects their risk of developing heart disease. People also need to learn about all risk factors for heart disease.
