Smart for the Heart
An online wellness program, tailored for your heart
Smart for the Heart is a web-based cardiovascular health tool launched by Sister to Sister in partnership with Brigham and Women’s Hospital that evaluates your risk for heart disease and provides specific recommendations and resources to address it. The program has been approved by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.
Once you’ve registered, you will be prompted to take our signature, 10 minute Health Risk Assessment, which will ask you questions about your attitude and various lifestyle habits, including diet and exercise. Before you get started, make sure you’ll be able to enter the following numbers, which can be obtained from your doctor:
- Blood pressure (systolic and diastolic);
- Cholesterol (total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides);
- Blood glucose, noting whether this test was done after fasting or not.
Once you’ve taken the HRA, a report will be generated explaining your heart disease risk factors, such as stress, high blood pressure, insufficient sleep or exercise, or poor diet, and what you can do about them.
You can also access a number of great tools to help you achieve your cardiovascular wellness goals. There are planning tools, such as exercise and meal planners; nutrition and exercise trackers to help you monitor and track your diet and physical activity; and a wealth of other information, such as an Ask an Expert service and workshops geared toward making lifestyle improvements.
