You only have one heart. Know your numbers.

Atrium Health is proud to bring awareness to Heart Health Month in February. Atrium Health teammates should make heart health a priority this month and all year long.

Some factors that put you at risk for heart disease are preventable. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.

Atrium Health Teammates: Heart Health Stories

Carol McCall-Davis, BSRT, (R), (T)
Radiation Therapist
Levine Cancer Institute, Cleveland

Heart health symptoms often show up differently in women than men. Carol is thankful she got checked for the pain in her collarbone and swollen leg, which revealed a life-threatening blockage in her heart that required a stent. To keep her heart healthy, Carol cycles regularly and maintains a vegan diet.


 

Take Time Out for Prevention

Teammates have a total of two hours of paid time, in 15-minute increments, at any time during the year, to complete routine preventive care. Learn how to log your time when using Time Out for Prevention.

See the Preventive Care Guide for a recommended schedule of screenings for adults and children.
