b'Follow Your Heart to TheHeart & Vascular Patient Care Benefit!The Heart & Vascular Patient Care Benefit, founded by physicians and other health care providers, raises money for the Heart & Vascular Patient Care Fund. One hundred percent of net proceeds go directly to supporting patients in need, allowing us to meet basic everyday necessities that extend beyond direct medical care. This fund has allowed us to support patients in non-traditional ways like assisting with urgent financial needs such as rent or utilities. It also allows for items such as scales and blood pressure cuffs, empowering patients to monitor their health at home. We are treating the whole patient, understanding it takes more than medicine to support our community.During 2021, the Heart & Vascular Patient Care Fund:Provided 140 scales to patients.
