This finger-stick test provides total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol), triglycerides and the ratio of the total cholesterol to HDL and includes a cardiac risk assessment. This test requires a 10-12 hour fast and participants will know results within 7 minutes. Appointment times are recommended.

Learn Hands-only Bystander CPR
According the the American Red Cross, one quarter of Americans say they have been in a situation where someone needed CPR. If you were one of them, would you know what to do?
Parkview Mobile Nurses have made it their mission to ensure everyone in our community knows Hands-only CPR. According to the American Heart Association, most people who experience cardiac arrest at home, work or in a public place die because they don't receive immediate CPR from someone at the scene.

Leopoldo Lopez, Billet Checker at EVRAZ for 36 years
"The health risks identified at the Parkview Medical Center sponsored health fair is what prompted me to make an appointment to see my family doctor. Parkview Mobile Nurses made me aware of my blood pressure, they saved my life."
John Zane, San Isabel Electric for 40 years
"I went to the Parkview Health Fair in December 2006 and had the prostate specific antigen test. Later that month, I was notified by a phone call from a Parkview Mobile Nurse that my PSA screening result was out of range. My wife Rita and I discussed the results and decided I needed to follow up with an urologist for further testing. The results of the biopsy was stage 6 cancer. I immediately began treatment and today I am cancer free. I knew the health fair was a good thing because most men don't go to the doctor. The health fair saved my life as I would have been dead. I encourage all my co-workers to do the health screenings."
Candelario Estrada, Pueblo Board of Water Works
"My name is Candelario Estrada, I am 33 years old and currently employed at the Pueblo Board of Water Works. In 2012, I attended an annual health fair provided by my employer and orchestrated by Parkview Mobile Nurses. Here I had to face a harsh reality of being morbidly obese and borderline diabetic. I was also confronted with a number of unhealthy statistics including my cholesterol level. With all the information I was furnished, it motivated me to make a lifestyle change. In 2013, I had the honor to be recognized as the winner of the weight challenge of our wellness program at the Pueblo Board of Water Works. From the start of my weight loss journey, I have lost a total of 65 pounds and turned my unhealthy physical statistics back it to the normal range. This helped me personally and professionally, which in turn has helped me become a better husband, father and employee. I could not have made this lifestyle change without the continuing education and awareness provided by Parkview Mobile Nurses and the wellness fair."
