Memorial Offers Free Health Screenings for Hancock Anniversary

As part of the Hancock Bank 115th anniversary celebration Thursday, Memorial Hospital set up free health screenings. Anyone at the event got the opportunity to get their height, weight, blood pressure, and B.M.I. measured.

John Pessonui, a doctor at Memorial Hospital, says, “Mississippi does not have a good reputation as far as healthy lifestyle and healthy people, so any kind of outreach that we can do to get people aware of the problems that they have and that they see. They might not be sure about how to take care of it, what needs to be done next, but we’ll be happy to work with them on that.”

Memorial is starting an occupational health clinic for companies to help keep employees healthy.
