The CHRISTUS St. Patrick Regional Heart Center is now taking appointments for A Heartfelt Screening - a comprehensive heart screening where women can identify their risk factors for heart disease. The screenings are age specific and based on risks. They last approximately one hour and include the following:

- Complete family history
- Physical exam
- Blood pressure testing
- Dietary screening (height, weight, BMI)
- Labs (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL, triglycerides, blood sugar) - 4 hour fast required
- Framingham assessment - predicts risks for coronary event
Participants will also receive a free spa gift with their screening.
The cost is $75; cash, check and credit card are accepted. For members of the St. Patrick Women's Health Network, the cost is only $50.
