Tests take approximately 15 minutes, with the appointment lasting about 30 minutes. Screenings include a full lipid panel with total cholesterol, glucose and blood pressure checks. Copies of test results will be provided so participants may follow up with their primary care provider.
Eight hours of fasting is required for accurate test results, and no food or beverages other than water should be consumed after midnight the night before the test. Most medications are okay to take, with water, prior to the screenings. Check with your primary care provider to be sure. Do not make any changes to your medication schedule without checking in with your provider.
Heart-healthy refreshments will be provided at each screening for people to enjoy after their tests. Registration is required and space is limited. To schedule an appointment, call toll free 1-855-543-2780 (1-855-5-HEART-0).
