Heart Aware

Each day, nearly 2,400 Americans die from cardiovascular disease. This translates to an average of one death every 36 seconds.

Only one in every four people who have peripheral artery disease (PAD) ever experience any symptoms.  But left untreated, PAD can lead to a heart attack, stroke, or loss of a limb.

The good news is that both cardiovascular and vascular disease can be predicted and prevented. The University of Miami Hospital and UHealh - University of Miami Health System are committed to helping our community avoid cardiovascular and vascular illnesses by helping determine your level of risk.
