New You Medical Tip: Take steps to assess your risk for heart disease—before it is too late.


Counter Attack   

One in four Americans die of heart disease, and 80 percent of strokes are preventable. A series of ultrasound tests that check for heart attack, stroke, and aneurysm risk factors may save your life. Ultrasound screening tests—the echocardiogram, the stroke-carotid artery ultrasound, and the aortic aneurysm ultrasound—peer inside your heart and arteries to detect blockages and abnormalities. Healthfair, a leader in mobile health screenings, offers these tests in conjunction with hospitals at an affordable cost (under $200), and no health insurance is required.
