The holidays are behind us and it is time to jump-start the New Year with a focus on your personal health. It’s time to get back in shape and have a free annual wellness visit at Care Resource Little Havana. New, uninsured patients can meet with a primary care physician to have a basic exam, routine labs and a cholesterol screening.

Our Registered Dietitian, Gloria Cabral, would like to stress the importance of a cholesterol check-up as a healthy, annual practice. “The body needs some cholesterol in order to function properly. The body’s cell walls, or membranes, need cholesterol and the body uses cholesterol to produce hormones, vitamin D, and the bile acids that help to digest fat, but, the body needs only a small amount of cholesterol to meet its needs. To lower cholesterol, the American Heart Association recommends that one eat low saturated fat foods, quit smoking and exercise. Aside from adding zing to almost any dish, some studies show garlic may help lower cholesterol; it’s also been found to prevent blood clots, reduce blood pressure, and protect against infections.”

Join the Care Resource family and help us provide you with the absolute best opportunity for a long, healthy, and productive life. Care Resource services are provided on a sliding-fee scale based on income and household size. This scale can provide reduced fees for those who are uninsured, have a low income, or may be undocumented.
