In recognition of February’s Heart Month and the American Heart Association's Heart Walk in May, Research Medical Center Brookside Campus is offering a Heart Healthy Fair on April 29 and May 1 from 4pm to 7pm. There will be free blood pressure checks, Body Mass Index scores, cooking demonstrations, Framingham Heart Score, and exercise tips and tours of the fitness center.
Coronary Calcium Score will also be offered but pre-registration is recommended. Heart disease is responsible for about 1 in every 4 deaths in the US annually. This CT scan is a convenient, non-invasive way of evaluating your risk for a heart attack. It takes approximately 10 minutes. To schedule a Coronary Calcium Score, call 816-276-7668. The test is not covered by most insurance or health plans and a doctor’s order is required. The fee is $50 payable by check, credit card or cash at the time of the service.
