Discounted blood analysis at SCOPE
The Rotary Club of Warren, in conjunction with Trumbull Memorial Hospital, is offering low-cost blood analysis during its Fall Blood Analysis program Saturday from 7 to 10 a.m. at SCOPE Inc., 220 West Market St.
For $36, participants will receive chemistry, CBC Profiles and urine testing. The chemistry profile tests glucose levels, triglyceride and cholesterol levels. The CBC Profile includes white blood- cell count, hemoglobin, hematocrit and platelet. Urine testing provides important information about possible diabetes, kidney disease or blood.
“At this time when many people have lost their jobs and benefits, the program is even more important to the community. For many people it is the only time they can afford to have these tests performed,” said Barry Dunaway, chairman.
