Two dollar heart checks in Lismore
CARDIAC nurses at Lismore Base Hospital will be conducting coronary heart disease risk factor assessments and cholesterol testing this Friday.
The tests will be carried out in the hospital foyer at a cost of only $2 between 9am and 1pm as part of national Heart Week
During Heart Week 2012, the Heart Foundation will be urging all Australians to learn the warning signs of heart attack.
You could make Heart Week your organisation's wellness week, or just share the information with your family and friends - it could help to save a life.
