Kingsbrook’s free screenings provide access to detection efforts
for the under and uninsured of the community. The screening program is

care and early detection efforts. Hypertension is linked to myriad of
other chronic health conditions such as stroke, heart attack, kidney &
liver disease to name a few. Regional data shows that 26% of the Flatbush
