Your Public Health Working For You!

Senior Screening

The Senior Screening program is funded through the UPCAP Services Inc., UP Area Agency on Aging.

Promoting healthy lifestyles of older people is vital in helping them to maintain health and functional independence and lead healthy and independent lives. The science of aging indicates that chronic disease and disability are not inevitable. As a result, health promotion and disease prevention activities and programs are an increasing priority for older adults.

Like exercise, eating right, and doing other things to keep healthy, preventive care is up to you. Some tests can help find problems or diseases before you start to have symptoms. Treating a health problem sooner rather than later improves your chances of getting better - it even can save your life. Below are some of the services you will be offered at your Health Screening:

  • Blood Pressure Check
  • Cholesterol Test
  • Diabetes Test (High Blood Sugar)
  • Hemoglobin Test (Blood Iron Level)
  • Fecal Occult Blood Test (Colon Cancer)
  • Health Education

Eligibility Requirements:

  • Resident of Dickinson or Iron County
  • 60 years of age or older
