Health campaigns play a crucial role in promoting behaviors and lifestyle changes that can significantly impact public health.

On Saturday, June 8, from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm, cholesterol measurement and a consultation with a cardiology specialist are offered for free on the first floor of the Abele Ajello Hospital in Mazara del Vallo (Tp), and subsequently, the results will be further examined by a specialist.

You can book at Nelcuoredellatuacittà.it and, in a few minutes, through a finger prick, know the levels of your lipid profile at the clinic’s premises.

The stop at Mazara del Vallo is the first of 4 stops in 4 different Italian regions and is part of the Nel cuore della tua città campaign by Novartis, within the Ascolta il tuo battito campaign promoted by Aisc (Italian Association of Cardiac Decompensation) and Fipc (Italian Heart Foundation).

The appointment is designed to assist individuals, particularly those with medium and high cardiovascular risk. This includes people who have already had a heart attack or stroke, those who suffer from diabetes, or those who have a family history with these types of diseases.

The goal is to ensure these individuals do not underestimate their risk level and can reduce it through better knowledge and management of LDL levels. Elevated LDL levels are one of the main causes of experiencing a new acute event, so managing these levels is crucial.

The correct management of these patients must, therefore, necessarily aim to achieve the LDL cholesterol values recommended by the joint Guidelines of the European Society of Cardiology (Esc) and the European Society of Atherosclerosis (Eas), which are those below 55 mg/dL. (Redazione)
