Having an active lifestyle and eating well are two main components of keeping your heart healthy. Knowing your risk based on medical and family history is important too. Cardiovascular disease develops silently over decades and can affect anyone regardless of their risk factors. Early detection and treatment is the best way to prevent heart attacks, strokes and vascular disease complications.
Screening tests are an important assessment tool to determine if you are at risk for cardiovascular disease. That’s why Baptist Health is offering BHeart Healthy Screenings for $99.
Screenings are available at two locations:
Your BHeart Healthy Screening Will Include:
