Preventive health is key to helping individuals stay healthy and detecting health problems  before they cause other issues or become more difficult to treat. Wright County Public Health provides certain preventative health screenings for clients. Wright County Public Health Nurses cannot diagnose or treat medical conditions, and services provided do not replace regular visits to a medical provider. 

  1. Blood Pressure
  2. Cholesterol
  3. Hemoglobin A1c

Blood pressure is the amount of force the blood uses to get through a person's arteries. When the heart pumps, it uses force to push oxygen-rich blood out to the arteries and bring it to the body’s cells and tissues. If blood pressure is too high, it may cause additional health issues such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure, kidney disease, and vision loss.
