Heart Health Screenings

Protect yourself and your family from heart disease.

Overview

Heart disease - including high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, and stroke - is the #1 cause of death in the United States. And most of the time, there are very few symptoms or signs. Regular screenings are truly the only way to stay in touch with the health of your heart. The American Heart Association recommends blood cholesterol (lipid) screenings every 4 years starting at age 20, and blood pressure screenings every 2 years starting at age 20. If you already have high blood pressure, you should get it checked much more often. Heart disease is highly preventable, so being armed with information means you can take the steps needed to maintain your health for the long term.
