MedSource, a service of Ephraim McDowell Health, is offering free lung volume screenings and body fat analysis on Thursday, May 8, from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. MedSource is located at 326 West Walnut Street next to Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center. Appointments are not necessary.
The lung volume screening measures the strength and capacity of an individual's lungs. Body fat analysis is important for any individual's health. Health professionals recommend that men maintain their body fat at no more than 23 percent while women should maintain a body fat level of no more than 27 percent. Body fat levels over those percentages may put individuals at risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and some types of cancer.
