Heart Health

Cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke) is a leading cause of death for Canadian men and women, so it is important to understand your risk factors and key prevention strategies.

The 2018 Travelling Health Fair is dedicated to helping you learn about heart health and how to prevent heart disease. Awareness and knowledge are critical. This Travelling Health Fair is open to all staff, faculty, and postdoctoral fellow.

Services are provided by pharmacists from the UBC Pharmacists Clinic and trained students from the UBC Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences.

As part of this FREE health fair you will receive confidential screening information and measurements related to:

  • Blood pressure;

  • BMI (height, weight, waist measurement;

  • Cholesterol (involves a small finger prick);

  • Heart disease risk (Framingham score), and

  • Counselling and interpretation of results with a licensed pharmacist or student pharmacist in training.

    UBC's Health, Wellbeing and Benefits team will also be on hand to provide resources, information and freebies!

    Appointments are available every 15 minutes and the screening last approximately 20-30 minutes.

    All participants will receive a Health Passport in which you will receive confidential and individual results. These results will be interpreted by licensed Registered Pharmacists assisted by Pharmacy students in order to assess risk and make recommendations to improve health and lifestyle factors.
