The Erie County Clerk's Office,the Wellness Institute and Mercy Hospital of Buffalo have teamed up to offer free blood pressure screenings at auto bureaus across Erie County this February as part of American Heart Month.
Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death in Erie County and the No. 1 cause of death in the United States, officials said when announcing the effort.
"The concept of being able to receive a mini health checkup while stopping at your local auto bureau is nontraditional and unique, that's why I think it will be useful," Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns said in a news release.
Screenings will be available from 10 AM-2 PM on the following days and locations:
-Cheektowaga Auto Bureau: Feb 21-23
-Elma Auto Bureau: Feb 28
