MY VASCULAR HEALTH
A grassroots vascular awareness and prevention campaign empowering high school students to better understand the impact of vascular risk factors on their vascular health decades later.
Fulfilling Our Goals Since 2016
Students & Parents impacted
There remains significant gaps in connecting the dots of vascular risk factors that affect the young (diabetes, obesity, hypertension, and smoking), and their resultant impact on vascular disease that leads to stroke, amputation, heart attack, and death. The V-Healthy program strives to empower young students through education to better understand the implications of these risk factors on their vascular health.
Who are V-Healthy Educators?
Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Medical Students, Nursing Students, and Patients.
What is the V-Healthy Curriculum?
Educators will be broken up into teams and will deliver a standardized curriculum focused on teaching students the impact of hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, obesity, and smoking on a young adult’s vascular health decades later.
Which schools are participating?
Over 20 Upstate New York high schools from the Hudson Valley to Glens Falls. Our volunteers connect with over 10,000 students during a one-day interactive program.
We would like to congratulate our past V-Healthy scholarship winners!
