Know your Numbers this February
Much like October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, February is all about Heart Health Month and we at Medi-Station Urgent Care love everything about it. Kicking off the 1st day of the month with Go Red for Women, our staff takes the American Heart Association’s campaign to heart (no pun intended) and go all out with their red attire.
We know and understand the importance of Heart health and for that reason we do our part in educating our patients and community at the best of our ability. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.
Why are we so passionate about Heart Health? Well, for starters the numbers are alarming and in many cases it’s preventable.
We see it, in our own urgent care, time and time again patients coming through the door with some cardiac related condition. The good news that Heart disease can often be prevented so long you make positive health choices and manage your health conditions accurately.
With the intention to keep you informed and managing your conditions accurately, we are offering our community complimentary testing – Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Blood Sugar and BMI (Body Mass Index) from February 1- 14th. This campaign aligns with that of the American Heart Association’s “Know your Numbers”, enforcing the importance of knowledge in getting accurate treatment.
Medi-Station Urgent Care is completely equipped and staff trained to provide you with an achievable plan of action in keeping you well on your way to optimal living.
We believe that communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices. Should you have any doubt or questions, you could always contact our center. We are open 7 days a week with extended hours, in order to better assist you.
Appointments are not necessary, however, if you know you’ll be dropping by, we recommend that you give our “Quick Check-In” option a try, on our website www.medistationurgentcare.com. It’s a simple process and it’ll save you some registration downtime.
True wealth is having your health, and knowledge of self. – Immortal Technique
