Heart of a champion

Published on January 31, 2019

Do you know how healthy your heart is? What if you could find out how likely you are to have a heart attack or stroke?

The University of Louisville schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Public Health and Information Sciences, along with community partners, will be holding free heart health clinics in Smoketown this winter and spring. This program will help participants learn their heart health, ways to prevent heart attack and stroke, and provide treatment for those in need.

Physicians will be on site. The clinics are FREE! And no health insurance is necessary.


  • Free heart health profile with assessments of:
  • Blood pressure, heart rate, cholesterol and arterial ultrasound
  • Self-assessments for body mass, diet, sleep, smoking and exercise


  • FAST (Facts Available in a Short Timespan) classes on diet, exercise, sleep and smoking cessation
  • Information on how to improve health and reduce the likelihood of heart attack or stroke
