YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Mercy Health Youngstown in collaboration with St. Patrick Church of Youngstown will host a summer screening event on Tuesday.

Guests will have access to the following screenings: 

  • Body mass index (BMI)
  • Blood pressure
  • Bone density
  • Dental screening
  • Mammography (Note: Charges for mammography may apply based on insurance coverage.)
  • Prostate-specific blood draw

The hospital system will also have educational programming on the following topics:

  • Diabetes Education
  • Hispanic Health Program
  • Hospice of the Valley
  • Lead Prevention
  • Prescription Assistance
  • Radiology Services
  • Resource Mothers – Centering Pregnancy
  • Stepping Out
  • Tobacco Cessation

Each guest will receive a warm meal, as well as a grocery bag full of food and a hygiene bag filled with toiletry items.

Community members who are in need of transportation to the event can make arrangements for a Catholic Charities shuttle service by calling (330) 480-3405. Participants must pre-register for prostate screenings by calling (330) 480-3405 and for a mammogram by calling (330) 480-2654.
