NorthShore Health Center will provide free blood pressure screenings to walk-in patrons at both branches of Westchester Public Library. Blood pressure screenings are offered each month at the Hageman Branch on the second Thursday of the month, and the third Wednesday of the month at the Thomas Branch.

On Thursday, November 8 Hageman patrons can get their blood pressure screened from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at the Hageman Branch. Thomas patrons may come to the Bertha Wood Meeting Room on the second floor of the Thomas Branch, between the hours of 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. on Wednesday, November 21 to get their blood pressure taken.

Blood pressure is the pressure of the blood in the circulatory system, often measured for diagnosis since it is closely related to the force and rate of the heartbeat and diameter and elasticity of the arterial walls. In addition to the free blood pressure screenings, interested patrons will receive help calculating their Body Mass Index (BMI).

The Hageman Branch is located at 100 Francis Street in Porter, and the Thomas Branch is located at 200 W. Indiana Avenue in Chesterton.
