MusiCares, in partnership with Qliance, a Seattle-based monthly fee primary care clinic, presents a limited opportunity to receive a free basic health assessment. This assessment includes glucose, blood pressure, BMI, cholesterol tests and hepatitis C+ and HIV screenings. Following the testing, a primary care specialist will meet confidentially with each participant to discuss basic health concerns, family/individual medical history and test results. Participants will receive a packet including Qliance information, their health assessment overview documents and supplementary materials. Patients will also receive a coupon for $30 off the registration fee should they decide to join Qliance.

IMPORTANT: For accurate results you must be fasting for 8–12 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. This means no food. Water is encouraged; tea and black coffee are also ok as long as there is nothing in them. Testing can be conducted otherwise, but will not be as accurate or a reliable source of information.

Assessments will be provided free of charge to pre-screened, pre-approved music professionals, upon establishing eligibility. Appointments will be assigned in 30-minute increments.

Space is limited. Contact MusiCares at 800.687.4227 (toll-free) to schedule an appointment.
