2014/2015 Health Screening Season

The Heart of New Ulm Project's Heart Health Screening Season launched in September 2014. Screenings are a research study of the Heart of New Ulm Project. 

A free screening is your chance to measure your personal progress since your last screening. Even if you recently had a screening at your worksite or another location, your participation is still very important in helping The Heart of New Ulm Project monitor how healthy the New Ulm community is overall. This will enable us to share where we are succeeding and where we still need to improve.
