Aetna Better Health of New Jersey recently sponsored the second day of National Health Center Week events held at CHEMED (The Center for Health Education, Medicine and Dentistry), a federally qualified health care center, 1771 Madison Avenue, Lakewood, N.J.

CHEMED representatives held health screenings, including free blood pressure, glucose, and cholesterol screenings; and oxygen saturation, heart rate, and BMI monitoring. They also offered summer safety tips and provided information on how to avoid exposure to lead.

Senator Robert Singer, 30th Legislative District, vice chairman of the Ocean County Board of Health, who presented a proclamation from the Senate in honor of National Health Center Week, welcomed Glenn MacFarlane, CEO of Aetna, and community civic leaders and pastors.

Senator Singer said, “We welcome Aetna to Ocean County and wish them success in serving the county’s residents.”

Dr. David Friedman, CEO of CHEMED, said, “Aetna successfully serves the health insurance needs of New Jersey. We are excited they will be joining our other HMOs in providing coverage.”
