One of the ways WellStar brings world-class healthcare into our communities is through Well*Screen events, which provide convenient, easy access to a variety of common screening tests for numerous medical conditions and overall health.
Well*Screens can detect many medical conditions at an early stage before symptoms are present. Early detection and treatment can improve your quality of life and, in many cases, even save your life.
Offered by WellStar Community Education & Outreach, Well*Screen events are held throughout the year at various WellStar facilities, as well as on-site at many convenient locations such as YMCA’s, congregations and senior centers.
