The Florida Heart Research Institute was founded in 1944 and was the first heart hospital and research center in the world. Formerly known as the Miami Heart Institute, it quickly became world renowned for its visionary accomplishments in the research and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
Today Florida Heart assist the uninsured with FREE screenings for heart disease. Each participant receives printed clinical results (total cholesterol, HDL, ratio, glucose, blood pressure, and body mass index), educational literature (English/Spanish/Creole) on heart health, and one-on-one counseling by culturally sensitive trained health educators.
Monies raised from this fundraiser will be used for additional screenings throughout the State of Florida for those individuals that cannot afford to see a doctor.
