Prevention Programs

Everyone is at risk for cardiovascular disease, but there's so much you can do to prevent it. And we can help.

Heart Partners: A Twelve Week Program That Will Change Your Life

Everyone is at risk for cardiovascular disease, and that includes you. Man or woman, young or old, the disease blindly kills more Americans each year than anything else. You can learn to lower your risk. You can learn to change unhealthy lifestyle habits. You can learn to live. And we can teach you.

Participants receive an individualized cardiovascular risk factor analysis and a complete prevention plan. You'll undergo an assessment of your eating habits and a realistic, flexible nutrition program will be developed for you. You'll also receive a personalized exercise assessment and plan, with 12 weeks of supervised exercise sessions. What's more, you won't have to do any of this alone.

Heart Partners is a proven, effective method of permanent lifestyle change-exclusive to our region and extraordinary in the fact that we're right there with you-from your initial assessment through post-program follow-up. 

Risk factors you can learn to live with

  • Family history of heart disease
  • Male over age 45
  • Female over age 55
  • Diabetes

Risk factors you can learn to live without

  • High blood pressure

Lipid Clinic

High cholesterol levels mean a higher risk for heart disease, so we'll check your cholesterol or lipid levels and give you the results immediately. If necessary, lipid particle size and inflammation can also be measured to help guide in the management of lipid disorders.
