Know Your Numbers

International Pageants has an amazing alliance with American Heart Association- Go Red For Women. I feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with this organization during my year as Miss International 2017. In addition to participating in Heart Walks and Go Red luncheons, my goal is to spread knowledge about cardiovascular disease prevention and what personal health numbers you need to know.

As a healthcare provider, I believe it is of utmost importance to have patients be an active participant in their care. You can personally take action by “knowing your numbers”. At your next visit you can start by asking about the following:
  • Blood pressure
  • Fasting blood sugar
  • Cholesterol 
  • BMI (body mass index)

These numbers can help your provider determine your risk for developing heart disease (the number one killer of women). For more information please visit, learn your risk and join the Go Red Movement!

In health and happiness,

Miss International 2017
