US Wellness and Spokesperson Heidi Klum kicked off the weekend long event on March 19 in Santa Monica, California on March 19, as part of a year long campaign to raise heart disease awareness and give individual heart disease risk assessments.
US Wellness’ health screeners provided blood pressure and body mass index (BMI) testing to visitors of the Diet Coke and Heart Truth "Pop-up" experience. The event also featured registered dietitians and other health experts who offered advice on healthy lifestyle habits and staying active.
“We are honored to be a part of this multifaceted approach to raising awareness for heart disease and its risk factors, which are presenting at epidemic levels in this country,” US Wellness President and CEO Tori Tomlinson said. “The Heart Truth creates energetic and purposeful ways to involve communities in taking control of their personal health.”
“Creating opportunities and environments that draw people into health education is crucial to beginning a path toward long-term wellness. This pop-up event is a marriage between the first step: screening and the integration of healthy behavior that will prevent heart disease and other life-threatening chronic conditions.”
