World Heart Day at Madeira Private Hospital

New private hosptital offers free heart screening 1Thanks to Peter for sending me a link to an offer that may be of interest to some Madeiran residents: To mark World Heart Day on September 29, the recently opened Madeira Private Hospital (HPM) will offer a free screening during the week of September 23-27. The hospital opened at the end of May.

The free screening includes various exams/tests: electrocardiogram, cholesterol assessment, blood glucose, blood pressure, body mass index (weight and height) and waist circumference.

September 29 is promoted around the world by the World Heart Federation, which is the main representative organization for the cardiovascular community, including national and international societies, such as the Portuguese Cardiology Foundation and the Portuguese Society of Cardiology.
