West Des Moines, Iowa-based Hy-Vee is offering several events in February to encourage people to keep their health goals, including 1,000 free cholesterol screenings at more than 50 stores throughout its eight-state region. This test requires a blood draw and is an important practice that should be done regularly.

A cholesterol screening and can provide people with information about their overall health and help them take the appropriate actions to reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke. Participants are encouraged to fast nine to 12 hours before the 15-minute screening. Individuals will receive results during their appointment time. Registration is required and can be made online here

Cholesterol screenings are available while supplies last and provided in partnership with RX Sugar, Perfect Snacks, Sweet Loren’s, Belgioioso and National Peanut Board.
