Are you at risk from Australia’s biggest serial killer?
Our Chronic Disease team at the Southern Queensland Centre of Excellence at Inala and Eight Mile Plains Community Health Centre are offering free heart and blood pressure checks as part of Heart Week so you can avoid a heart attack.
Passionate clinical nurse, Rebecca Pich hopes that everyone will take a moment to listen to their heart.
“We really encourage members of the local community near Inala and Eight Mile Plains will come in for a free blood pressure check and speak with our cardiac nurse and physiotherapist about reducing their risks of a heart attack.
“Heart attack kills 51 Australians every day so it’s important to be aware of the signs and symptoms, know your blood pressure and cholesterol level, and reduce your risk of having a heart attack,” she said.
The Heart foundation has also created an online calculator so that everyone can calculate their risk of heart disease. https://www.heartfoundation.org.au/your-heart/know-your-risks/heart-age-...
Heart week is from 29 April – 6 May 2019.
