HeartAware

Take the Free HeartAware Risk Screening

Heart screening in Raleigh, NC is as easy as taking the HeartAware Risk Screening. Unlike some diseases, cardiovascular disease can largely be predicted and prevented. Over 79 million Americans have heart disease and many don't know it. The HeartAware online evaluation takes only seven minutes and provides information about your personal risk for heart disease. Answer a few simple questions and HeartAware will provide you with a report of your risk factors and recommendations for improving and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 

If the heart screening shows you are at risk, you don't have to take the next steps alone. Rex Healthcare offers a free follow-up screening and consultation so that you can decide how to proceed.

HeartAware is an exclusive heart screening in Raleigh, NC for the Rex Healthcare community. Cardiac awareness and information about heart disease on the HeartAware site are provided by the National Heart Organization.
