Women Take Heart is open to women of any age. Women 40 and over and those under 40 with risk factors such as a family history of heart disease or lifestyle considerations are encouraged to participate in any of the screenings that we offer.

Our program includes a blood cholesterol profile (LDL, HDL, triglycerides and fasting blood sugar). Your results are immediately available for us to discuss with you and can also be sent to your physician.

A private counseling session with an experienced cardiac registered nurse to evaluate your personal risk of heart disease, discuss your cholesterol profile and how you can reduce your overall risk is also available. You also have to option to purchase a one-on-one nutrition and/or exercise consultation, as well as additional services that support a heart healthy lifestyle.

Women Take Heart screenings are personal and confidential. Once your risk of developing heart disease has been determined, you will receive detailed education on how to help lower your risk and modify your lifestyle on areas such as nutrition, exercise, stress, smoking and hormone use. If needed, we can also help you to obtain a medical evaluation and treatment.

For more information or to make an appointment, please call the St. Elizabeth Women’s Wellness Heart Center at (859) 301-6333.
