Don’t forget to sign up for the 504k!
Get into shape and help empower youth across New Orleans next month at Youth Run NOLA’s 504k. People of all athletic backgrounds, and from all neighborhoods are encouraged to lace up with hundreds of hard-working young runners!
As part of St. Thomas’s commitment to health access for all, we are proud to be the first-ever title sponsor of Youth Run NOLA’s largest annual fundraiser.
February is American Heart Month
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in Louisiana. If you have high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholestorel or use tobacco, you may be at risk for cardiovascular disease. Warning signs such as chest pain, chest pressure, shortness of breath or leg swelling should not be ignored.
You don’t have to visit the emergency room for routine care. Make your heart health a priority this month by scheduling a visit with a heart & vascular specialist. Don’t wait until it’s too late!
