It’s easy to be HeartWise
Nothing is more important than your heart. Since more than 80% of heart disease can be prevented, it’s never too early or too late to be HeartWise! That’s the idea behind the HeartWise program at Baptist Health – to give you and your loved ones easy ways to maximize your heart health, every day.
Three Ways to Take Care of Your Heart
1) Know your numbers.. Of course, it’s a great idea to have a relationship with a primary care doctor for your overall health. But you don’t have to wait for your annual wellness visit to stay on top of your risk factors. Why not get a free health screening from one of our wellness coaches throughout the community? You don’t have to be a Y member to take advantage of our free screenings, available five days a week at these locations:
2) Put yourself first. If you are a woman, chances are you take care of everyone before you take care of yourself. That’s why we created 4her Wellness Resources for Women, available at the Baptist Y Healthy Living Center Riverside location. Complimentary services include Wellness Wednesdays 4her (weekly gatherings featuring the latest on women’s health and wellness topics), wellness coaching for today’s busy woman, and navigation assistance to help you find the physicians and services you need.
3) Eat wisely.. Choosing more foods from a Mediterranean-based diet can help prevent, and sometimes reverse, heart trouble. Download these helpful tip sheets from our HeartWise medical director, Pamela Rama, MD.
