It’s easy to be HeartWise Main Content

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 HeartWise at Baptist Health – to give you and your loved ones easy ways to maximize your heart health, every day.

3 Ways to Take Care of Your Heart

1. Take the Know Your Numbers Challenge

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. We offer free online Personal Health Surveys and 1-hour health assessments at all of our Y Healthy Living Center locations and JCA Wellness Connexion to help you get to know your numbers. This includes blood pressure, glucose, cholesterol levels and more.

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, complimentary services including 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. Call 202.4her (4437) or email 4her@bmcjax.com for more information.

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 Baptist Heart Specialist's cardiologist and Medical Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation, Pamela Rama, MD.
