Physicians: Next Tuesday, February 14, is Love Your Heart Day, and we need your help in reaching the County’s goal of surpassing 35,000 blood pressure screenings in one day! Love Your Heart is a countywide blood pressure screening event with the goal of getting San Diego County residents to “know their numbers” and take charge of their own heart health.
Participating as a health partner is free and easy. Click here to download a simple tally sheet that your staff can use to record your patients’ blood pressure values. At the end of the day, fax over your completed forms to (858) 560-0179 or email them to Andrew at Andrew.Gonzalez@Championsfh.org. In addition, if you would like to be listed with 2-1-1 and on the Love Your Heart event map as a walk-in site for patients to obtain their readings, please let Andrew know.
Physician involvement is crucial in preventing heart disease, and San Diego is uniquely positioned to demonstrate how an integrated approach toward healthy living can impact healthcare costs, reduce suffering, and save lives. If you have any questions or concerns, email Andrew or call him at (858) 300-2787. Thank you for your help on Tuesday; we hope to have you as a Love Your Heart 2017 Health Partner! — Mihir Parikh, MD, President, SDCMS
