What would you do if we told you that in a matter of minutes you may be able to save your life? Health concerns come about from both genetic and lifestyle choices and understanding where your personal risks lie may make the difference between life and death.
Hammond-Henry Hospital and UnityPoint Health Trinity have partnered to bring the HealthAware risk assessment program to Henry County and surrounding areas. We offer a variety of online health assessments so that you can learn what the risks are, and in many cases, we offer additional testing or screenings for free or at discounted prices to further isolate your health concerns. Take the assessment, get screened, know your risk of heart disease and other conditions, and live your life. It’s as easy as that.
The HeartAware program is a free, seven-minute online questionnaire. After completing the assessment, each participant is given an immediate, personalized score that indicates their overall risk of developing cardiovascular disease as well as ways to reduce that risk. All information is confidential.
If the individual’s scores meet certain clinical criteria for being at high risk for heart disease, they are given a free cholesterol screening. They also are then eligible for a free 30-minute consultation with a nurse who checks blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar levels, family health history and body mass index score. If a person is found to be at risk, the nurse will give the patient a report to give to their primary care physician to further follow their condition.
