The goal of the program is to educate and encourage Indiana residents to take a proactive role in their own health. Check Up 13 includes news stories that will air on the 13th of every month during the Health Beat segment. The program will highlight St. Vincent Health medical staff and focus on the health topic screening, event or promotion for that month.
 
Heart Disease

Heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. Known as the 'silent killer,' one of every four deaths in America is related to heart disease.

According to the Centers for Disease Control Prevention, someone in the U.S. suffers a coronary event every 34 seconds and each minute, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event. Because heart disease often strikes without warning or symptoms, many people do not know they are at risk until it is too late. More>>
