NEW CASTLE — Ellwood City Hospital will sponsor a free men’s cardiac health screening this month.

The testing is conducted by board certified cardiologists and hospital staff. It will include a screening stress test, non-fasting cholesterol and blood sugar analysis, blood pressure monitoring and height, weight and waist measurement.

Educational materials and refreshments also will be available.

There is no charge for the service, but appointments are required. Those who wish to make an appointment should call (724) 752-6747.
