Heart Age Assessments Tuesday, February 21 from 10 am to noon

Free Event

According to the CDC, the majority of U.S. adults have a heart age that is older than their chronological age — evidence that they could be at greater risk for heart attacks and stroke. In addition, CDC researchers have found substantial disparities in heart age based on race/ethnicity, gender, region and other socio-demographic characteristics. Heart age is the calculated age of a person’s cardiovascular system based on his or her risk factor profile, which could include high blood pressure, cigarette smoking, and diabetes. Among the findings: – Overall, the average heart age for adult men is eight years older than their chronological age, compared to five years older for women. Although heart age exceeds chronological age for all racial/ethnic groups, it is highest among African-American men and women (an average of 11 years older for both).

February is heart health month. Cardiology Nurses, Heidi Miller and Melissa Jordan from Aurora Hospital will be providing Heart Age Assessments.   Each nurse will provide a ten minute session from 10:00am until Noon.
