The Center for Living in the Prairie Heart Institute at St. John’s Hospital is committed to helping employers and employees of our community prevent cardiovascular disease. Our on-site cardiovascular risk assessment* gives employees the information they need to make informed decisions about their health. In three easy steps, we will test, assess and educate your employees on how they can reduce their risk for heart disease.
Step 1: Test Your employees will learn their “numbers” based on a series of simple tests. They will need to fast (not eat or drink anything for 12 hours) before these tests.
Step 2: Assess After getting their test numbers, employees are instructed to go to www.prairieheart.com, click on Healthy Heart Information, HeartAware Online Risk Assessment and input their results. When finished, they will print their personalized report.
Step 3: Educate At the conclusion of the testing period, we will provide a 30-minute presentation to help your employees understand their numbers and what they need to do to take control of their health and prevent cardiovascular disease. We will close with a short stress management session that will teach simple skills to better manage stress and enhance personal self-care. Your employees will receive information and resources that will help them make the lifestyle changes needed to prevent cardiovascular disease and improve overall health.
