CUMMING - 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.

The free screening will take place:

Saturday, Oct. 26, 9:00-12:00
Northside Hospital-Forsyth
Education Center, 3rd Floor
1200 Northside Forsyth Dr. Cumming
Free parking available

The 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. A limited number of advanced services - EKG, leg vein and peripheral artery disease (PAD) screening, carotid and heart ultrasound – also will be available.

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