CVS Health offers no-cost heart health screenings

CVS Health is continuing its support of the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women movement by offering no cost "Know Your Numbers" heart health screenings at the company's MinuteClinic, every Wednesday.

"Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly one in three women each year and their effects have touched many of our colleagues and customers," Lisa Bisaccia, chief human resources officer at CVS Health, and incoming national volunteer chair for Go Red For Women, said. "By supporting Go Red For Women, we are creating an easy way for people to take the steps they need to prevent heart disease and to show their support for family, friends and neighbors who are affected."

Customers can visit their local MinuteClinic on February 7, 14, 21 and 28 to receive a heart health preventative screening at no-cost. Those who attend the screenings also will learn their five personal health numbers, which can help determine risk for heart disease, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar and body mass index.

The screenings available at the MinuteClinic are sponsored by Bayer Aspirin. A list of locations offering the service can be found by visiting MinuteClinic's website. CVS Pharmacy customers also can support Go Red For Women by making a $1, $3 or larger donation at a location nationwide, or on CVS Health's website until February 17.
