(Brooklyn, NY August 27, 2006) The everyday discussions about savings and investments as usually take place at the McGuinness branch of the Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union, were changed during two sessions on August 20th and September 17th to professional analysis of blood pressure, as well as glucose and cholesterol levels. The PSFCU community room was converted into a “clinic”, where the medical staff of Bellevue Hospital, invited by PSFCU, conducted the free screenings for the local Polish community and PSFCU members. In addition to the free screenings, members also had access to free medical advice about general health, proper diets, smoking cessation and health insurance plans.

PSFCU, which organized a similar event last year, has been cooperating with Bellevue Hospital for several years already. “Polish & Slavic Federal Credit Union is a very important partner for us. Thanks to a donation from the Credit Union, we were able to prepare all the informational material in Polish. Our staff also has Polish speaking personnel who often help us communicate with Polish patients”, commented Ms. Chris Cho and Camille Ferdinand, representatives of Bellevue Hospital. Both ladies helped organize a similar event in 2004, which also received high ranks from the community.
“This year the event was well organized and the location was great, since there was parking available” acknowledged long time members Mr. & Mrs. Malz, who also took advantage of the screenings in previous years. “There were no unnecessary lines, the screenings went smoothly and the results were given quickly. We are grateful to the Credit Union personnel, who gave up their Sunday, so that we can be tested. We also want to thank the hospital personnel for their professionalism and good advice.”
