Wise Choices is a program designed to screen and identify income-eligible men and women, insured or uninsured, aged 18 and up, with risk factors for heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Screening may take place in Sexual Health Services (formerly Family Planning) at the Health Department or in conjunction with Worksite Wellness or a Community Health Event. This program provides cholesterol, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Glucose or A1C, Body Mass Index, and Blood Pressure measurements.
