Heart to Heart
Screening, education and peace of mind about your heart health.
Heart to Heart is a screening program designed to increase awareness of heart health and wellness. It gives people an opportunity to have several cardiopulmonary screens performed that may reveal interrelated and potentially life-threatening diseases. An educational component helps participants understand and interpret the results of their screens.
The basic program is $95 and offers the following screenings:
• blood sugar
• blood pressure
• body mass index
• cardiac CT-calcium scoring
• coronary risk profile (cholesterol)
• electrocardiogram (EKG)
• kidney function
Cardiovascular disease continues to be the number one killer of men and women in the United States. For women, although breast cancer is often stressed by the media, cardiovascular disease claims nearly 10 times more female lives each year. For men the numbers continue to grow - more and more young men in their 20s, 30s and 40s are suffering from cardiovascular disease.
Why are so many suffering from a condition which in many ways could be prevented? Simply stated, symptoms are not investigated nor do the risk factors that contribute to cardiovascular disease get examined, so the disease is neither diagnosed nor treated until it is too late.
Heart to Heart offers peace of mind, or early detection for possible life-saving treatments.
