It is fine to take medications with water. AnMed Health Medical outreach will be on site offering free blood pressure, blood sugar and total cholesterol screenings. A Lipid profile including the breakdown of cholesterol into HDL, LDL, and Triglycerides is offered for a cost of $15. Additionally, AnMed?s Rehab hospital will be offering free balance screening to attendees. Once again SC DHEC will be offering flu vaccines as well.
