VISALIA – Kaweah Delta Health
Care District is giving people an opportunity to take one of 15 free health
risk assessments to identify factors that put them at risk for health
conditions such as diabetes, stroke, cancer, heart attacks and more.
The 5-7 minute health risk
assessments are available by clicking on “Screenings and Assessments.” Everyone who completes one by Friday, April 4, will
be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a Kindle Fire. Those who are deemed at highest-risk
for a health condition can choose to take advantage of a free one-on-one
consultation with a Kaweah Delta staff member. Completing an assessment could
help save a person’s life as people are often unaware of factors that put them
at risk for diabetes, stroke, cancer, or heart disease or heart attacks.
Following the survey, users
can opt-in to receive newsletters with health tips. The following health risk
assessments are available online:
