Check Your Heart
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, but it's preventable.
To identify and treat heart disease early, it's crucial to get your heart checked in person or virtually. You'll learn your blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar, weight, and family history. It's also important to understand that heart disease affects women and men differently.
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.
We have digital resources, heart health webinars, and opportunities for in-person and virtual consultations with our experts. We hope to provide you with helpful information to keep your heart healthy.
Don't delay care. Schedule an appointment with our experts.
