A steady stream of people all day took advantage of a free health screening held in the Bi-Lo parking lot on Wednesday, May 18. The North Carolina Farm Bureau’s Healthy Living for a Lifetime initiative provided the health screenings. Saluda Medical Center, St. Luke’s Hospital and other healthcare organizations are working with the N.C. and the Polk County Farm Bureau on this initiative. Healthy Living for a Lifetime is an approach to addressing the immediate healthcare needs of rural North Carolinians while fostering awareness of healthy lifestyle choices that will result in long-term health improvements among vulnerable populations.
