For Those Who Love You, Make Sure To Check Your Heart

Blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, weight, and family history. These are just a few of the things doctors use to identify risk factors for heart disease, the leading cause of death in the country for both men and women. It’s important to get your heart checked — in-person or through virtual visits — to know your risk factors. Experts from the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute have teamed up with the American Heart Association and the Pittsburgh Penguins® to encourage you to check your heart and keep your health on track. With digital resources, heart health webinars, and opportunities for virtual consultations with our experts, we hope to provide you with helpful information to keep your heart healthy.

Throughout the month of February, experts from the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute are offering a series of free webinars for the community to learn about a variety of heart health subjects. Topics include heart disease risk factors, women's cardiology, vascular disease, and understanding your blood pressure, among others. View the virtual events below and click to register.
