Education and an Ounce of Prevention
Learn more at the August Care for Your Heart Health Fair
As we reported last month, Henry Mayo has recently expanded its cardiovascular services to address one of the greatest killers in the United States, cardiovascular disease. In addition to diagnostic care, minimally invasive interventions and open-heart surgery, Henry Mayo has an impressive range of education and prevention programs.
Founded on the belief that cardiovascular disease is preventable, Henry Mayo's quarterly Care for Your Heart Health Fairs are committed to educating local residents on how to prevent and possible identify signs and symptoms of cardiovascular disease.
The free health fair offers educational materials, nutrition and smoking cessation information as well as a series of health screenings including, blood pressure monitoring, height, weight and body composition, oxygen saturation and carbon monoxide measurement along with cholesterol and glucose testing. Please note, it is recommended that individuals fast 12 hours prior to a cholesterol and glucose test to ensure the best possible reading.
