WATER VALLEY – Cinnamed Yalobusha Medical Clinic, LLC owner Cinnamon Foster, Family Nurse Practitioner has received three American Heart Association outpatient program awards in recognition for commitment to reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke through improving high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and blood pressure management.
Nearly half of all adults in the U.S. have experienced some form of cardiovascular disease – including heart attack, stroke and heart failure. Leading risk factors for cardiovascular disease include high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, and uncontrolled high blood pressure, but through proper risk factor diagnosis and treatment, heart disease and stroke can be prevented or managed.
“Annual participation in these three initiatives is important because they help clinicians raise awareness among patients who have diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels and teach them how to keep their numbers under control,” said Cinnamon Foster, Family Nurse Practitioner and owner of Cinnamed Yalobusha Medical Clinic, LLC.
To improve quality of care and help people learn to manage their risk factors around high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and blood pressure management, Cinnamed – Yalobusha Medical Clinic, LLC participates in the following programs:
• Check. Change. Control. Cholesterol™
• Target: Type 2 Diabetes
• Target: BP™
“Cinnamed – Yalobusha Medical Clinic, LLC is honored to be recognized by the American Heart Association for our dedication to helping our patients have the resources to manage risk factors and hopefully reduce or avoid heart attacks, stroke and other preventable heart concerns,” said Cinnamon Foster, FNP. “Programs like the ones that address the real-world problems of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and uncontrolled type 2 diabetes are necessary to improve health today and avoid larger problems for many patients tomorrow.”
This year, Cinnamed Medical Clinic, LLC received the following achievement awards:
Check. Change. Control. Cholesterol™ Gold Level
• Target: Type 2 Diabetes Gold Level
• Target: BP™ Gold+ recognition from both the American Heart Association and the American Medical Association (AMA)
“Addressing blood pressure management is key for better cardiovascular health – and critical today since heart disease and strokes continue to be a leading cause of death for Americans,” James Langabeer, Ph.D., FAHA, volunteer expert for the American Heart Association and Professor and Vice Chair of Emergency Medicine with McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). “We are pleased to recognize Cinnamed Yalobusha Medical Clinic, LLC for their commitment to managing the risk factors for patients around critical risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes.”
