A lipid profile blood draw will be provided which measures total cholesterol, HDL (good cholesterol), LDL (bad cholesterol) and Triglycerides.  Those participating MUST BE FASTING 12-15 hours prior to the blood draw to be tested.  Screening will take place across from the lab/x-ray waiting room, first floor. Look for signs. Questions can be directed to Janet at 815-561-3113.  You do not need to register, first come first served.  

 

Celebrate National Wear Red Day on Friday, February 7!  RCH employees will be wearing red on February 7 to raise awareness in the fight against heart disease and support the American Heart Association. We’ll be taking a group picture for fun.  We’d like to challenge local businesses to wear red to work that day also!  Send your “red” pictures to jstewart@rcha.net and we’ll post them on our Facebook page.
