Keep Your Heart in the Game With Baptist!

Baptist is dedicated to helping our community get heart healthy. As a proud sponsor of the 2023 Southern Heritage Classic, we’re excited to share with you information you can use to live healthier and happier lives. Before the big game, please visit our hospitality tent in the RV Blue Lot #15 for these and other special offerings.

Blood Pressure Screenings

We’ll have nurses and health technicians onsite providing blood pressure screenings and information on treating and living with hypertension, and how you can improve your numbers for better heart health.

CPR Hands-On Compression Demonstrations

Learn how to properly administer first aid care and perform life-saving cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from Baptist’s health care providers. Also, learn how to recognize when someone is in cardiac and/or respiratory distress so you can be prepared to save a life.

Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) Testing

The ABI test is used to measure how well blood is flowing throughout the body, particularly in the limbs. We can take blood pressure readings in your arms and legs to calculate your ABI index and potential risk for peripheral artery disease.

Stroke Education

When a stroke occurs, every moment counts. Learn how to recognize the signs of a stroke, including slurred speech, paralysis or numbing, blurred vision in one or both eyes, disorientation, dizziness and headache, and how you can B.E. F.A.S.T. to respond.

And Much More

Come by our tent to say hi to our team members and volunteers and enjoy free giveaways and helpful information on a variety of health issues, and get ready for a great game!

Where to find us

You can find Baptist’s tent in the RV (Blue) Lot 15 on Early Maxwell Blvd., adjacent to Tiger Lane. Just look for the big blue Baptist sign! See you there!
