We're Hosting Multiple Events in February to Highlight American Heart Month
Bryan Health is hosting multiple events during February to highlight American Heart Month, a time dedicated to raising awareness about preventing cardiovascular disease, the number one killer of men and women in the United States.
Online HeartAware Screenings
Bryan Health offers free, confidential online heart screenings that will let you know, in the privacy of your own home, if you are at risk for heart disease. HeartAware is an online evaluation that asks participants to answer a series of questions about their health. Upon completion, individuals receive a customized report and recommendations for follow-up actions. Participants at risk for heart disease will have the opportunity to meet with a nurse and discuss their health.
To take a screening, visit bryanhealth.org/online-screenings.
Bryan Medical Center is offering cardiovascular screenings on Thursday, February 19 from 7:30 a.m.-3 p.m.
These painless, noninvasive screenings will be available by appointment only at the Early Detection Center. Three screenings will be offered: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Ultrasound Screening will cost $40, Peripheral Arterial Disease Screening will cost $20, and Atrial Fibrillation Screening will cost $10.
To register, call 402-481-5121.
