The FORT teen space at Homewood library has reopened

Pam Oliver feels “so blessed” to have gotten a health screening at Franciscan Health. “That scan saved my life,” she said. It was the first step in a line of tests that led to doctors detecting a cancerous growth.

Oliver is so thankful, that she is helping Franciscan Health make the scans available to others. The screening bundles are designed to help those who meet age and risk factor qualifications better understand their health. Heart, lung and vascular screening packages start at $49, and include a heart risk assessment.
