Good for Your Heart: Free Heart Screenings and Lectures

You give so much of your heart to others, caring for family and friends. But who’s caring for your heart? At Bon Secours, our cardiac team is passionate about caring for the special cardiovascular needs of Hampton Roads residents.

The Bon Secours Heart and Vascular Institute is offering a variety of free health screenings, including:

  • BMI screenings
  • Blood Pressure tests
  • Electrocardiograms
  • Ankle/Brachial Indexes (ABI) – Ankle/brachial indexes measure blood pressure at the ankle and arm and are used to predict the severity of peripheral arterial disease, which is linked to a higher risk of heart attack or stroke.
  • Glucose/Cholesterol tests

Following the free health screenings, we will also have a panel discussion with the area’s top cardiovascular physician specialists. Speakers will include:

Marc Rosenberg, MD
Cardiovascular Specialists

Ryan Seutter, MD
Cardiovascular Specialists

Cost: Free, but registration is required to attend.
Time: Saturday, February 25, 2012 Screenings from 9 – 11:15 a.m., lectures from 12 – 2 p.m.
Where: Registration at the Heart Center entrance, Maryview Medical Center

We encourage interested participants to take our free, online heart health screening before attending and bring the results of their assessment with them to the event.
