In response to the disproportionate number of community residents suffering from heart diseases, hypertension and other illnesses, the Hope Center provides health care referral services. Several times during the year health care practitioners perform screenings which include blood pressure monitoring, lead testing, and sugar level monitoring. Individuals are referred for further testing whenever necessary. A variety of health-related classes are also offered by the Center. These include understanding the causes and symptoms of diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, prostate cancer and other illnesses that affect minority groups.
