STOCKBRIDGE, Ga. – In honor of Heart Month, Piedmont Henry Hospital will be offering heart health screenings on Tuesday, February 12 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wal-Mart in Stockbridge on Hudson Bridge Road.
“Prevention is key to beating heart disease,” said Shelly Selby, director of Cardiovascular Services and Critical Care at Piedmont Henry Hospital. “Knowing what puts you at risk such as smoking, being overweight, high blood pressure and family history is a start. Making the lifestyle adjustments necessary to combat the disease is the next step.”
Those interested in taking control of their heart health can receive a free total cholesterol screening and cardiovascular risk assessment at the annual heart health screening event, courtesy of Piedmont Henry. No fasting is required for the total cholesterol screening.
