The first step toward better heart health is to know YOUR risk factors. A simple, basic screening typically checks your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, BMI/waist circumference as well as your family and medical history to predict your risk of heart attack or stroke. As a national partner with Quest Labs through Your Lab Works, women and men have access to low-cost basic and advance cardiovascular screenings!
If you are over 40 years of age, take the next step by talking to your doctor about a Coronary Artery Calcium Scan. This quick, painless screening can detect heart disease at its earliest stages and is saving lives! We are also affiliated with Lifeline Screening providing low-cost advance cardiovascular screenings across the US.
Every year, around 300,000 women die from this largely preventable disease however the good news is that 80% of heart disease can be prevented or managed. That means this is a fight we can win. This is a fight we must win but we need women, like you, to join our cause! We gather online through our private Facebook group reaching women from around the country!
Our largest community outreach means more opportunities to share our life-saving message. Each year, we partner with around 60 community partners for this unique event that provides school supplies, free health screenings and access to resources for more than 2,000 local students and 1,000 parents/guardians!
Sheila and Bill Caldwell, founders of The Heart2Heart Foundation pictured here with Bob Harper, celebrity fitness trainer and host of "The Biggest Loser" and fellow survivor, leads the national Survivors Have Heart group. The Caldwells - who are both survivors - are champions for the initiative to reach out to others recovering from cardiac events and to those at risk of heart disease.
Thanks to the generosity of the Singhi Charitable Foundation, our Advance CVD Prevention Screening Program is free to eligible participants over the age of 20 in York, Chester, Lancaster in South Carolina and Mecklenburg County in North Carolina.
