OU Physicians to offer no cost health screenings at Plaza Mayor
in Oklahoma City on March 28th
(Oklahoma City) OU Physicians is collaborating with the Latino Community Development Agency to offer health screenings to the public on Friday, March 28, at Plaza Mayor, formerly known as Crossroads Mall. The screenings will be held from 8 to 11 a.m. and will be provided at no cost to participants.
“We want to give people the tools they need to live healthy, productive lives and health screenings are a good start,” said Brian Maddy, chief executive officer of OU Physicians, the state’s largest physicians group. “The screenings are quick and easy and provide valuable health information. With the help of the Latino Community Development Agency, we hope to reach as many people as possible, particularly those in the city’s Hispanic community.”
Participants can be screened at no cost for total cholesterol, glucose level, body composition (total body fat and body mass index) and blood pressure/resting pulse. Spanish-speaking health personnel will be available to answer any questions participants may have about their screening results. The Latino Community Development Association will also provide additional materials about health insurance.
To obtain the most accurate health information, participants are urged not to eat in the morning before their health screening.
The screenings are part of an outreach effort conducted by the OU Physicians Community Health Services program.

When: 8-11 a.m., Friday, March 28
