5 Steps to a Healthier Heart

Presented by heart attack survivor & founder:

Sheila Caldwell, CHC


Heart disease is the #1 killer of women & men in the US yet many of us don't know that we have it until it is too late. Around 80% of the risk factors that lead to heart disease can be prevented or managed ... so that gives us HOPE!


Join heart attack survivor Sheila Caldwell as she shares 5 steps you can take today toward better heart health. 

As a Community Partner with the Healthy Hearts Network & The Heart Truth, we are pleased to provide these great resources!



The first step in the fight against heart disease is to know YOUR unique risk factors.

This begins with a check of your:

  • cholesterol

  • blood pressure

  • glucose

  • BMI & waist circumference

Schedule your screening with your doctor or find a community screening or lab near you.


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!
