Know Your Risk

The key to preventing heart disease is to manage your risk factors. While some risk factors such as age, gender and family history cannot be changed, there are other risk factors that we can treat with lifestyle changes. The first step is to understand your risk by taking an online assessment, knowing your numbers and talking to your doctor. We also offer heart screening programs in the community to help you assess your risk of heart disease.
