Why I Go Red #PiedmontGoesRed #Spon

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller

The heart is the animator of life and source of love. Scriptures throughout history teach that the heart was the seat of the soul and if directed by the mind, was the path to enlightenment. Today, much emphasis is placed on mental health, while preventative maintenance and care for the heart is often overlooked.


Heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the United States and can be a silent killer. One out of three women die suddenly of coronary heart disease and almost two-thirds of these women have no previous symptoms. Even if you have no symptoms, you may still be at risk for heart disease. Let's join together to keep the heart in mind by raising awareness to reduce our chances of getting heart disease.
Piedmont Heart Institute is a proud sponsor of Atlanta #GoRed for Women Campaign. Piedmont Heart has created a comprehensive screening which is much more than a regular checkup. You will receive a detailed report along with expert recommendations on how to keep your heart healthy. And it’s just $100! 

The individualized risk analysis is done with a nurse practitioner, and includes a complete health history assessment, physical exam and screening, EKG test, lab work, and an extensive Heart Health Report.

I decided to schedule my heart screening, because I want to be around for my children. While heart disease does not run in my family, it was important for me to still get tested and learn about the risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high total cholesterol or high blood glucose. But how do you know which risk factors you have? The best way to find out is through screening tests during regular doctor visits.

To reduce your chances of getting heart disease it is crucial to keep the heart in mind.  This means not only choosing to live a heart centered life of courage, cooperation, and purpose, but being responsible for the emotional and physical health of you heart.  If our hearts are healthy and strong, we can continue to fully express the power of love on earth.

Here are some easy tips, provided by Piedmont Healthcarefor women at any stage of life to begin living a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Getting screened is easy and convenient with 6 screening locations across the metro Atlanta area. Join the conversation on social media and use the hashtags #PiedmontGoesRed and #GoRedWearRed.
