TULSA - Today, local fitness and wellness experts are on hand to get the entire family on the right track to a healthy lifestyle, with free fitness classes and health screenings.
The first ever Tulsa Pulse, being held May 11 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Guthrie Green Park in downtown Tulsa, is a partnership between MyHealth Access Network and the George Kaiser Foundation to bring "greater awareness to the importance of physical fitness and consistent monitoring of your heart health." Organizers said those two factors are the leading indicators of a healthy lifestyle.
Tulsa Pulse will offer free blood pressure, cholesterol, hemoglobin A1C, blood sugar and BMI testing. There will also be a cardiograph cart and immunization station.
Heart Health Mobile will provide on-site test results and instantly show attendees their heart risk and risk reduction recommendations.
Local health instructors will also provide free fitness and health cooking classes during the event to address those risks. Physicians and chronic disease agencies will also be on site.
Admission is free to the public. Each activity is on a first-come, first-served basis.
