At-Home Lab Testing in partnership with the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa, carried out a cardiometabolic screening in June on around 130 professionals from the D. João II School Group.
This research project aimed to raise awareness of the importance of a preventive diagnosis of heart health associated with heart disease. This type of screening usually causes some discomfort in people due to the way in which the blood sample is collected. With the At-Home Lab Testing solution, through a finger prick and together with the measurements of height, weight, waist circumference, blood pressure, it was possible to offer a less invasive alternative that managed to bring more awareness and comfort to this entire process.
This type of screening allows information on the prevalence of risk factors to be obtained, thus contributing to the implementation of personalized prevention measures and improvements in cardiovascular health.
