BATON ROUGE, La. -- Baton Rouge General’s Express Care clinic, located steps from Tiger Stadium at LSU’s Nicholson Gateway, is hosting a free health screening event on Saturday, April 6 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Screenings will include cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure.

“If you’re in the area Saturday, stop by and take advantage of these quick, preventive screenings, which can help chart a course for better health,” said Joni Lemoine, RN, a director of nursing at BRG. “We’re new to the neighborhood, and we love the chance to get to know the community we serve.”

The free screenings are open to anyone, and no registration is required. There will be a tent right outside the clinic doors with giveaways, a popcorn bar and the chance to win a tailgate package complete with Rtic cooler, Bluetooth speaker and washer toss game.

The Nicholson Gateway clinic is located at 3646 Nicholson Dr., near the intersection of Nicholson Dr. and N. Stadium Dr. BRG Express Care now has four locations – Nicholson Gateway, Highland Village, Bluebonnet, and Dutchtown Express Care in Ascension Parish.
