Love Your Heart is a one-day event during which the County of San Diego and its partners
provide free blood pressure screenings to the public at select sites throughout
the San Diego region. The goal of
Love Your Heart is to activate San Diegans to “know their numbers” and take
charge of their own heart health.
Love Your Heart is an effort that started with the County, and has since
grown to include a broad group of partners in healthcare, the fire community,
universities, city government, non-profits, and the federal Million Hearts
initiative. This truly unique event is a centerpiece of the County’s
regional wellness strategy, Live Well San Diego, which seeks to help residents
live healthy, safe and thriving lives through the collective impact of
the entire San Diego community.
Last year the County and its partners performed blood pressure checks on
more than 2,000 San Diegans at more than 60 sites—this year the
goal is to achieve a ten-fold increase and screen 20,000 San Diegans!
Alvarado Hospital encourages our neighbors to take the time to “love
their hearts” and get screened for free – it can save lives!
Free parking in the hospital garage with validation.
