This week we’re profiling Heart2Heart Foundation. Are they in your Givolio?
The Heart2Heart Foundation was founded in November 2012, and the nonprofit launched in January 2013. The organization is supported solely through volunteers which include health care professionals and people who are committed to raising awareness about this prevalent killer of men and women. Locally, with the assistance of health care providers like Piedmont Medical Center and Carolina Cardiology, the Foundation helps adults with Advance Screenings such as 12-lead EKG and Coronary Calcium Scoring
The Heart2Heart Foundation is committed to raising awareness about the dangers of heart disease, which afflicts both men and women. They hope to educate all age groups on how to control or prevent risk factors that lead to the disease. In order to make a permanent change in the community, children need to be educated about the dangers of heart disease as well.
All fundraising stays local to help provide educational materials and clinical resources to local women. Scholarships are available to at-risk women through the generous donations to the foundation.
