  An Alert To Women About Heart DiseaseTM



On the 4th of every month we team up with our partner News4Jax to highlight the Take It To Heart Challenge™ and encourage women to follow our 4-Step program to a heart healthier life.

For June's 4 on 4 we welcomed Jacksonville Jazz singer, Mama Blue, to the News4Jax Morning Show to talk about being a heart attack survivor.

Throughout the day on News4Jax, 70 people signed up to be Take It To Heart™ Challengers and take control of their heart health! We will have another great story to tell next month.


Free Health Screening

Our heart risk factors screening and Health Fair took place at The Fairgrounds, in downtown Jacksonville on March 26th.

The event included free blood pressure readings, total cholesterol and glucose checks, and BMI.

Heart disease is known as the silent killer. It is the number one killer of American women. Stroke is the third highest cause of death. Yet, research shows that less than half of all women are aware of these alarming statistics.
