Dedicated to providing easy access to early prevention and detection services for the community, Kingsbrook's Best Health School will offer free hypertension screenings and education to visiting patients and guests on Feb. 15th, 2018. Screenings will be conducted from 11:00am- 1:00pm in the Briger Lobby of the medical center located on Winthrop Street between Schenectady Avenue & 49th Street. Kingsbrook’s free screenings provide access to detection efforts for the under and uninsured of the community.

"Hypertension is linked to myriad of other chronic health conditions such as stroke, heart attack, kidney & liver disease to name a few," sayd Enid Dillard, Director of Marketing & Public Affairs at Kingsbrook. "Regional data shows that 26% of the Flatbush Brooklyn communities suffer from hypertension, so these screenings are critical to prevention and treatment."
