Cardiovascular disease is # 1 killer of Americans

Northside offers free heart and vascular screening

Northside Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Institute will offer a free screening to determine an individual’s risk for heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) disease, or CVD. CVD remains the No. 1 killer of Americans, according to the American Heart Association.

There are a range of factors that raise the risk of developing CVD and having a heart attack or stroke. The more factors an individual has, the greater risk. It is essential to find out the risk for CVD and make a plan to prevent it.

The free screening takes place from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 14 at Northside Hospital Forsyth at the Education Center on the third floor. The facility is located at 1200 Northside Forsyth Drive, Cumming, Ga. 30041. Free parking is available.

The comprehensive screening is administered by health care professionals and will include a one-on-one consultation, risk assessment, blood pressure reading, total cholesterol (HDL, ratio of TC/HDL) as well as glucose testing and body mass index (BMI) analysis. The screening is free, but registration is required. Call 404-851-6550 to secure your spot and schedule an appointment.
