Heart Screening Events

Heart disease is the number one killer in America, but in most cases, it's preventable. UPMC and the American Heart Association are partnering to raise awareness about the risks of heart disease and to encourage those at risk to get screened.

You can get screened by:

  • Scheduling a comprehensive evaluation (covered by insurance in most cases) by calling 1-855-UPMC-HVI (876-2484)
  • Attending a free cardiovascular screening event
