Vascular Disease Assessment Helps Identify Your Risk

Adventist Health NW Regional Heart

The online vascular disease assessment offered by Northwest Regional Heart and Vascular is proving to be a valuable tool for the Northwest. Since launching in January of 2014 hundreds of individuals have completed the brief assessment that helps identify their risk for vascular disease. The assessment is a free tool developed by the providers at Northwest Regional Heart and Vascular with the goal of improving vascular health in the communities we serve.

Vascular disease can lead to an increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Gone undetected it can also result in loss of mobility and even the loss of a limb. Nearly 12 million Americans are affected by this disease. The good news is that vascular disease can largely be predicted and prevented.

We encourage you to take our vascular disease assessment and follow up with your doctor if the tool shows that you are at high-risk.
