Best Way to Prevent Heart Disease? Become HeartWise

HeartWiseWomen_revCardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women, but it doesn’t have to be that way. By living a heart-healthy lifestyle, over 80% of heart disease could be prevented. Where do you begin?

Baptist Health in Jacksonville has a comprehensive wellness and prevention program, HeartWise, that gives you the personalized knowledge, guidance and support to maximize your heart-healthy lifestyle. Through the HeartWise program, women (and men!) can get a comprehensive screening and consultation to help them detect the risk factors for cardiovascular disease in the earliest stages. The one-hour consultation includes an in-depth evaluation of your personal risk factors, including tests to determine your heat health baseline, lipid panel/glucose and electrocardiogram (EKG) as well as a professional consultation to learn how to better manager your risks. If follow-up care is needed, they will refer to you a primary care physician or cardiologist and provide them with your results.

Our own, Donna Orender, just invested one hour to learn her risks, how about you? The number to schedule is 904-202-know or 904-202-5669 or you can visit our website at www.baptistjax.com/heartwise[baptistjax.com].
