Getting something for free is always a loaded comment. Is there really anything for Free? Well, Heart Healthy Solutions program with Northeast Colorado Health Department (NCHD) is about the closest thing imaginable. This program is designed to prevent, detect and control cardio cardiovascular disease in adults over the age of 18 and is totally free of charge.
These FREE, yes really FREE, 30-40 minute screenings will identify individuals at risk of heart attack or stroke and consist of:
Cholesterol check with immediate results
Instant blood sugar readings ( those with diabetes, will also receive instant A1C checks)
Blood pressure check
Individual risk assessment for developing heart disease over the next 10 years
Once screened, our NCHD Heath Care Navigator will go over the results, referring them to primary care for treatment if there are any concerns and include follow-ups with assistance in lifestyle and behavioral changes.
The program was not only created for individuals, but also for employers seeking to add a cost-effective wellness program for their employees. Our dedicated staff are available to come and set up at an office site, community center or school. All that is needed is an empty room, and an email to be sent out notifying everyone where to go and what time. We do the rest.
So whether you are an individual seeking knowledge, or an employer seeking added benefits, NCHD Heart Healthy Solutions is an amazing FREE program that offers life changing opportunities to our community.
