Clara Maass Medical Center Presents Clara’s Smart Hearts Free Risk Assessment for Women


Are you a woman at risk for heart disease? According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one killer of women, taking more lives than all forms of cancer combined. In an effort to help women learn if they are at risk for heart disease, Clara Maass Medical Center will offer free comprehensive risk assessments for women ages 50 years of age and older through Clara’s Smart Hearts Free Risk Assessment for Women on Thursday, February 11 from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Women’s Health Center in the Continuing Care Building at Clara Maass Medical Center.

Each free assessment includes a review of each participant’s medical history; blood pressure screening; heart auscultation measurements including heart rate, rhythm and presence of murmur; lung auscultation measurements; pulse assessments including carotid and peripheral pulses; blood glucose monitoring; cholesterol screenings; and limited neurological assessments.
