Pardee Hospital Launches Virtual Screening Center
Created on Monday, 04 August 2014 11:39
Written by Adam Fisher

Pardee Hospital has launched a new Virtual Screening Center, a free tool aimed at helping the community identify risks for various health issues.

These virtual step-by-step risk assessments review hereditary and behavioral factors that could be putting individuals at risk for developing a health issue. At the end of the risk assessment, a comprehensive report will walk participants through their answers and explain how each factor can increase their risk. These reports are printer-friendly, and Pardee encourages individuals to share the risk assessment with their primary care provider to see if further steps need to be taken. The virtual screening tool can be accessed at

Those without a provider can visit and take Pardee's online compatibility tool to find providers that match their personality and approaches to health

Hiking is an activity that cannot be overestimated when it comes to being a great exercise and giving you peace of mind. Walking at a good pace on a hike and taking in all the beautiful fall colors can get your heart rate up and burn calories. Plus, there is no doubt that hiking can help you lose weight and it will no doubt help you get in shape.
