Croí Healthcheck Saturday 13th January
Davitts GAA Club received funding from the HSE Lottery Fund this year as part of the Healthy Club Project.
This funding will be used to subsidise cardiovascular health assessments for club members, and the community at large, on Saturday 13th January in the Clubhouse. These health assessments will be carried out by a team from Croí and are specifically aimed at the 40 plus age group. However, they are open to anyone over the age of 18 with any concerns regarding their heart health.
The assessment is evidence based and includes cholesterol check, diabetes check, blood pressure check, body mass index (weight) and carbon monoxide measurement for smokers. A cardiac risk profile is then calculated based on these results followed by an individualised consultation from a member of the Croí team on how to reduce this risk of a cardiac event.
This assessment usually costs €50 but with our subsidy will only cost €35. Places are extremely limited and anyone interested should book this week with Croí on 091-544310.
If anyone has any questions regarding this, please contact Catherine Sweeney at 087-9634663.
