Heart Health & Prevention

Regular screening and care through your primary care physician is necessary to keep your heart healthy and diagnose early symptoms. If you have a family history of heart problems or meet any of the most common risk factors for heart or vascular disease, you may also want to see a cardiologist for more specialized screenings. Early reduction of risk factors and regular screenings are the best way to improve your outlook throughout life!

Start Early

Get a head start on your health by considering your heart health before problems occur. Between University’s Heart & Vascular team, our classes and nutritional services, and the advanced technology we have in-house, we can help you maintain your heart health and identify issues early, before they have a chance to cause significant complications.

  • Enroll in one of our classes to learn more about heart healthy diets or exercise routines.
  • Read our resources in the Everyday Health section.
