QUINCY —Registrations are being taken for Blessing Health’s next no-cost cholesterol screening from 7 to 9 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, at the Blessing Resource Center, 420 N. 34th.
A 12-hour fast before the test is required, as is an appointment. Visit events.blessinghealth.org and search “cholesterol,” call 217-277-5000 or stop by the Blessing Resource Center to register.
The test will measure levels of the following in the blood:
- LDL, sometimes called “bad” cholesterol

The results of a cholesterol test are part of the information needed to determine a person’s current heart health and future risk for heart disease.
