  • “HealthAware provides an easy entry point into the often-intimidating world of healthcare.”
  • “HealthAware facilitates partnerships with local industry which foster healthy work forces & strengthen our community presence.”
  • “One seemingly-healthy gentleman in his late 60’s came to a HeartAware screening with his wife and discovered previously unknown risk factors.  This resulted in a cardiology consultation, heart catheterization and subsequent bypass surgery within 2 weeks.  He is extremely grateful to the program and believes to this day that HeartAware saved his life.”
