BSA Raising Awareness of Cardiovascular Disease on World Heart Day

Posted

Amarillo, TX (September 29, 2021) – BSA Health System is distributing heart-shaped stickers to all BSA visitors and employees in honor of World Heart Day celebrated annually on September 29. World Heart Day raises awareness of cardiovascular disease, which contributes to 17.9 million deaths each year.

“As a leader in heart care, we are proud to help raise awareness of the importance of cardiovascular health in our community,” said Matt Parker, BSA Vice President of Cardiovascular Services.

BSA also wants to remind the community of the $99 coronary artery calcium scoring test, which detects calcium deposits in the arteries. Calcium deposit buildup in the arteries may lead to future heart-related health issues. A physician referral for the test is required.

“We are committed to providing the most innovative solutions for the prevention and treatment of heart issues and diseases,” Parker stated. “Our goal is to help our community members improve their overall cardiovascular well-being and lead fulfilling, healthy lives.”
