SC Hosts Statewide Screening Day for Heart Disease

Heart disease is the number one killer for both men and women in the U.S. and claims more than 600,000 lives each year. The symptoms of heart disease can vary, and are often misunderstood.

The good news is that approximately 80% of the risk factors leading to heart disease can be prevented or managed.

In recognition of National Heart Month, The Heart2Heart Foundation along with health care providers from across the state will be helping South Carolinians gain a better understanding of their numbers through coordinating heart health screenings in communities across the state.

This Thursday, February 18 is Statewide Screening Day.

South Carolinians will have a chance to get heart health screenings and risk assessments to learn their numbers.  Community events will be held throughout the month to offer more heart health screenings and educational programs.
