CVS has partnered with Go Red for Women to give free heart screenings on Wednesdays in February.
Dana Vollmer, earned many medals in swimming in the Olympic games, and is a happy wife and mother, but she like so many women in America suffer from a heart condition that if not properly managed could have had catastrophic results had it not been for the power of her own will and an expert medical team. Vollmer has been an ambassador for American Heart Association’s “Go Red for Women” program for many years now.
It is American Heart Month, and cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of women. In fact, these diseases kill one woman about every 80 seconds. High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke and it is expected to double in women under 45, so it is essential that women get checked out by their doctors.
Enter CVS. Every Wednesday in February, during American Heart Month, CVS is doing free screenings.
