Many Americans Go Without the Standard Blood Testing Performed on President Obama

Patients Can Now Order the "Presidential Blood Test Panel" From Health Testing Centers to Have Same Testing Done as in Obama's Physical

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - March 2, 2010) - Last weekend, President Obama underwent his first routine physical as President, including a variety of blood tests, to determine his overall health and fitness. After reviewing the lab results and other tests, he was found "fit for duty" and "in excellent health" by his Navy doctor.

President Obama's doctor understands the importance of lab testing as a form of preventive medicine. Just as these tests are important for the President, they are also crucial for the health of the American People. Many Americans go without this important medical information despite the importance of diagnostic testing to prevent or detect disease. Physicians commonly order the blood tests performed on the President, and Health Testing Centers provides access to these same preventative diagnostic tests. Now, in the "Presidential Panel," patients can order the same test President Obama received.

"Many people either lack health care or have expensive, high-deductible plans. Our 'Presidential Blood Test Panel' is an affordable alternative for those interested in the same high-quality health screening that the President of the United States receives," said David Lovely, president of Health Testing Centers. "If these preventive tests are good for the President, we think it will be great to provide affordable access for the rest of the country."

President Obama's blood tests measured the functioning of the body's major organs, cholesterol levels, prostate health, inflammation and risk for diseases. The Health Testing Centers' "Presidential Panel" includes five distinct blood tests which provide the same informative baseline of health data. Female patients may substitute a thyroid test for prostate cancer screening.
