Northside Hospital Offering Free Cardiovascular Screening in Forsyth

Northside Hospital’s Heart and Vascular Institute is offering a free screening to determine risk for heart and blood vessel (cardiovascular) disease, or CVD.  CVD remains the number one killer of Americans, according to the American Heart Association.  A range of factors can raise your risk of developing CVD and having a heart attack or stroke.  The more factors you have, the greater your risk.  It is essential that you measure your risk for CVD and make a plan for how you can prevent it.

The free screening will take place:
Saturday, March 8, 2014, 9 a.m.-noon
Northside Hospital-Forsyth
Education Center, 3rd Floor
1200 Northside Forsyth Dr, Cumming, GA  30041
Free parking available.

The comprehensive screening will be administered by health care professionals and will include a risk assessment, blood pressure reading, total cholesterol (HDL, ratio of TC/HDL) and glucose testing, body mass index (BMI) analysis, and a one-on-one consultation with a healthcare professional.

The screening is free, but registration is required.  Call 404-845-5555 and press “0” to schedule an appointment.
