Mark Twain Medical Center and Soroptimist kick off American Heart Month by offering FREE Lipid Panel

San Anderas, CA...As part of a continuing partnership with Soroptimist International of Calaveras County, Mark Twain Medical Center (MTMC) will be offering FREE cholesterol tests for women in Calaveras County during American Heart Month in February. “Today, there are many health concerns that are more prominent in the media, we tend to forget that heart disease is the #1 killer of women over the age of 25,” stated Craig Marks, Hospital President. “Partnering with the Soroptimist, our shared goal is to ensure that every woman in the Calaveras Community has a comprehensive cholesterol test. Last year over 500 Calaveras county women benefitted from our FREE Cholesterol screenings.”





This FREE screening is also known as a lipid panel, the test measures good and bad cholesterol and triglycerides helping to identify women at greater risk of heart disease and stroke. “Those identified to be of greater risk may be more mindful of lifestyle changes and treatments that preserve the quality of life,” concluded Marks.

The “Take It to Heart Program” offers the free cholesterol tests throughout February to women who live in Calaveras County. A 12 hour fast is recommended or no food after midnight, as is proof of address. Women needing the FREE cholesterol screenings do not need to schedule an appointment.

Calaveras County women wanting to participate can come to the MTMC laboratory, or any one of MTMC‟s Family Medical Centers located in Angels Camp, Arnold, Copperopolis, and Valley Springs.

Vouchers can be obtained in the above listed locations as well as other healthcare providers countywide.

“This is one of our most important services that we provide each year,” remarked Billie Westernoff, Soroptimist president. “We value our partnership with Mark Twain Medical Center to help the women in Calaveras County take a proactive step to ensure their health and well-being by getting their cholesterol testing free during the month of February.” Mark Twain Medical Center and the local Soroptimist International club have provided over 2,500 cholesterol tests over their 8 year partnership.

For more information about the FREE cholesterol tests please call the MTMC laboratory at 754-2583.
“The Take it to Heart project is a very meaningful during American Heart Month,” said Sandie Lema of
Mokelumne Hill, Sr. Director of Publications and Communications for the American Heart Association. “For the
past 10 years in February our Go Red For Women movement has raised awareness that heart disease is
the No. 1 killer of women and has also promoted healthy lifestyle choices for everyone. Friday, February 7, is
National Wear Red Day — wear red to raise awareness!”

On February 8th MTMC and Soroptimist International will be hosting a „Red Shoe Stroll‟ to celebrate Go
Red For Women. Starting at 8 a.m. participants and their families can warm up with local Zumba dancers
and all registered walkers/runners/strollers can celebrate a healthy lifestyle by participating in the 5k
course. All are encouraged to gather in the MTMC dining room for the awards ceremony followed by a
FREE heart healthy expo, healthy cooking demonstrations, appetizers, CPR information, and Cardiac
Rehab and other MTMC programs.

Red Shoe Stroll registration is $20, and $25 on the day of the walk. T-shirt is included. For more
information and registration please call 209-753-9700 or email sicalaverascounty@soroptimist.net.
