Free Community Health Screenings

We offer free community health screenings during which our healthcare team can meet with members of the community to discuss the importance of preventive cardiology and answer questions. Some examples of discussion topics are:

  • How to lower your cholesterol
  • What your blood pressure numbers mean
  • What you can do to maintain a healthy heart

Depending on the location and setting of the health screenings, free blood-pressure screening and personal consultations/evaluations are available.

Northwell Health connects patients with organizations managed by peers who have experienced cardiac surgery. The following organizations are able to provide additional support:

Mended Hearts, Inc./Mended Little Hearts: a national and community based organization that provides individuals who experienced heart surgery or heart disease an opportunity to encourage and support patients with similar conditions. The Mended Heart volunteers conduct hospital visits while a patient recovers, online check-ins and additional support through phone conversations. Learn more about this organization.
