Hello, Heart Care.
Did you know?
Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States, and it claims more lives than all forms of cancer combined. High blood pressure, high cholesterol levels and smoking are key risk factors for heart disease. About half of Americans (47%) have at least one of these three factors.
Use the checklist below to determine your risk for developing heart disease:
High Blood Pressure
Elevated cholesterol levels
Overweight and obesity
Excessive alcohol use
Clark Memorial is offering a FREE monthly Heart Health Assessment to help you determine your risk factors and take control of your heart health. The 30 minute assessment includes BMI (body mass index), blood pressure, blood glucose, and a full cholesterol screening. You will be provided with one-on-one education on what your numbers mean and given resources and tools to help you improve them, including tips on healthy eating, nutrition and physical activity.
Dates scheduled for assessments are February 15, March 15 and April 12. Appointments can be scheduled from 7 a.m. to noon.
