Cardiologists from the University of Rochester Medical Center will offer free blood pressure and oxygenation screenings from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday at Marketplace Mall.

This is part of the Medical Center’s community outreach efforts to mark American Heart Month.

Doctors and nurses will also demonstrate how the body’s blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen levels change and impact the body using “Sim Man,” a computerized mannequin. Participants will receive tips for improving their heart health.

The screenings are in front of the Gap.
