Managing risk means preventing heart events

What to Expect

At LifeWise, we understand the true importance of heart health for all. That is why Cardiac Health and Wellness is a major component of our on-site services.

Heart disease is preventable. Addressing risk factors associated with heart disease is paramount to significantly decreasing the likelihood of a serious cardiac event. Effective education, early diagnosis and intervention can also reduce claims and utilization costs that result from poor heart health.

Saint Luke’s created impactful on-site presentations that address risk factors and explain to your employees why these risks must be managed. Our clinical cardiology experts energize employees to follow the path to health with timely training presentations in conjunction with biometric and lab screenings or to kick off a population health management program.

Be your healthiest and feel your best by preventing heart disease

Topics are available in a variety of formats including on-site. Some of these include, controlling hypertension, the role of belly fat in heart disease, tips for permanent weigh loss, nutrition made simple, and optimizing heart health.
