In honor of American Heart Month, CVS Health is offering free heart health screening any Thursday during the month of February at local CVS MinuteClinics.  People can visit a local MinuteClinic for a free screening on February 7, 14, 21, or 28, 2019.

Individuals receiving screenings will learn the five key personal health numbers that can help determine risk for heart disease:  total cholesterol, HDL (good) cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index.

The MinuteClinic in North Haven is located at:

162 Washington Avenue

According to the American Heart Association, nearly 80 percent of cardiac events can be prevented.  Yet most people, especially women, don’t know their personal health numbers that are critical to determining their risk.  Knowing your risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke is critical to improving community health.

CVS Health also announced they have extended their support of the American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women campaign with a new, three-year, $15 million commitment to life-saving cardiovascular research and education.
