Heart health check time in Erina

30 July 2016: HCF is helping Erina members monitor their heart health through the pioneering Victor Chang heart health check program.

Heart Foundation research shows cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in Australia, killing one person every 11 minutes. That’s why it’s crucial to take the time to look after your heart.

A Victor Chang Health Check Booth will be at the HCF Erina branch in NSW from 1-3 August. Heart health checks are free to HCF members with extras cover.

A check takes about 10 minutes – a nurse checks blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels before providing a confidential assessment.
