On September 28th, 2008 the World Heart Association promoted the World heart Day.San Marino Society of Cardiology, together with Progetto Cuore and Associazione San Marino Cuore e Vita, hosted by the town of Borgo Maggiore,celebrated all day long this event within a District Festival.'Know Your Risk' - is a call to action to help people better understand their personal risk for cardiovascular disease, including hypertension (high blood pressure. Heart health screening and other activities for the public were organized in over one hundred countries worldwide.
The people attended this event were taken for an healthy walk and the an healthy meal. In addition we informed the participants about their personal risk of having a major cardiovascular event, such as stroke or myocardial infarction to better understand and control risk factors such as high blood pressure, smoking, high level of cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, sedentariness etc). A better control of risk factors, causes indeed a reduction of over 50% of major cardiovascular events and this has a very high impact on both the quality of life and the monetary costs.
During this event, Progetto Cuore, in presence of our Ministry of has inaugurated a new TOTEM containing an external automated defibrillator which has been donated to the town of Borgo Maggiore from “La Sociale” . The new Totem has been placed on the Piazza Mercatale neighbouring the Pharmacy.
