Nazareth Hospital Holds Blood Pressure Screenings Throughout February for American Heart Month
PHILADELPHIA, PA (January 27, 2014): Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Nazareth Hospital wants you to take a proactive stand on your cardiovascular health by attending one of our free blood pressure screenings. Held during American Heart Month, all free screenings will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. in the hospital’s Main Lobby, located at 2601 Holme Ave. in Philadelphia.
The first free screening session will be held on National Wear Red Day, Feb. 7. Created by the American Heart Association, the day encourages everyone to wear red to raise awareness of heart disease in women — the number one killer of females in the U.S. Be sure to wear something red to the event to show your support and to help raise awareness.
Subsequent free blood pressure screenings will be held Feb. 10, 17 and 24.
In addition to blood pressure readings, cardiovascular health literature will be provided to attendees.
