Free Heart Health Screening - National Women's Checkup Day

Burlington Coat Factory Get Directions
This May 14 marks National Women’s Checkup Day and with nearly 42.7 million women in the United States living with or at risk for heart disease, Burlington Coat Factory and WomenHeart, the only patient centered organization supporting women living with heart disease, have partnered to make a difference.
We invite you to join us on May 14 from 11:00 am - 2:00 pm as we host a heart health screening at your local Burlington Coat Factory in McAllen, TX. The screening will entail a blood pressure check, which is a vital part to assessing the risk of heart disease. A WomenHeart representative will also be on site to discuss the importance of heart health, answer heart health questions and distribute heart health tip cards to customers. It is also a special day because the store will present a donation of nearly $1 million dollars to WomenHeart's free support services and educational programs for women living with heart disease in communities throughout the country. These funds were generated as a result of the retailer’s first-ever Red Dress event hosted from February through Easter, in support of women’s heart health, which ran in all Burlington locations throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
