Your numbers are an important gauge of your overall health. Yet many mid-Missourians have no idea how they add up. This is where the Know Your Numbers mobile health unit comes in. A gift from the Boone Hospital Foundation and Board of Trustees, the vehicle travels our community providing health screenings with real results. It is putting us on a road to a better future. Knowing your numbers equals a healthier you — and a healthier mid-Missouri for all of us.
Health screens provided include total cholesterol, blood glucose, triglycerides, HDL and LDL, blood pressure and body composition analysis. For best results, 8-12 hours of fasting before screening is recommended.
Thanks to the support of the Boone Hospital Foundation, we will have special skin cancer screenings on the Know Your Numbers Mobile Health Unit. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the U.S. Early awareness and detection can make a difference. A registered nurse will perform FREE skin cancer screening at these events and if anything potentially abnormal is suspected, you will be encouraged to see your personal health care provider or a specialist of your choosing for further examination. It is not the intention of this screening to diagnose abnormal moles or lesions.
