EAST HANOVER — The East Hanover Health Department will conduct a SMAC Blood Testing Program for East Hanover residents 18 years or older on Saturday,  March 9, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. at the Roseland Borough Hall, 19 Harrison Avenue, Roseland. SMAC is a comprehensive blood test that analyzes over 20 components, including total cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides, glucose, and a CBC (Complete Blood Count.).

The Health Department’s nursing staff will provide blood pressure screening, and health education brochures will also be available.

To participate in the Clinic, call (973) 888-6035 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for an appointment.

For all participants who select the SMAC, there is a fee of $22.00, and for those who select the SMAC plus the PSA screening, there is a fee of $40.00. In addition to the SMAC test, the PSA (Prostatic Specific Antigen) blood test will also be available for men aged 50 and older or those 40 and older with added risk factors. Those at risk include African American men as well as men with a family history of cancer. The fee for the PSA test alone is $25.00.

Appointments are available on a first-come-first-served basis.

Fasting is required for the SMAC Blood Test; that is, no food or drink, except for water, for 12 hours before the test. If you are taking medication, you may continue to do so.

Checks should be made payable to Centers Laboratory. It should be noted that such tests are not to be considered diagnostic on their merit but require a consultation with your private physician to discuss results.

For further information, contact the East Hanover Health Department at (973) 888-6035
