  • Cholesterol — Total cholesterol is measured by a simple fingerstick technique. No fasting required and results are shared in minutes.

  • Vision — An easy way to test one’s vision to determine if there is an onset of vision problems such as blindness and vision impairment.

  • Spirometry — A pulmonary lung function tests the amount of air flowing in and out of the lung, how fast the air is able to flow in and out of the lung, how stiff the lungs are, and how well the lungs respond to chest physical therapy procedures.
