American Heart Association - Meet a Vendor


On November 2nd, 2018, Shortlister hosted Kristin Pham, Senior Program Manager with the American Heart Association Health Screening Services™, and Glenn Young, the VP of Sales and Marketing at Onsite Health Diagnostics (OHD), to present how the American Heart Association’s new workplace health offering, Life's Simple 7® Journey to Health™, creates differentiated market value and achieves meaningful heath improvement for clients.

The American Heart Association is dedicated to saving lives from two leading causes of death in the world, stroke and heart disease.  They have defined ideal cardiovascular health based on seven simple risk factors - Life's Simple 7® - which include smoking, diet, fitness, weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar.  By making the corresponding lifestyle changes, people can work toward improving the risk factors and see great changes in overall health:

  • Stop smokingPicture4-7
  • Eat better
  • Get active
  • Lose weight
  • Manage blood pressure
  • Control cholesterol
  • Reduce blood sugar

Life's Simple 7® Journey to Health™ emphasizes that even simple, small changes can make a big difference in living healthier and, when done in combination, the impact on overall health improvement is even greater:

  • 4 ideal factors = 75% lower diabetes incidence
  • 5 ideal factors = 50% lower risk of cardiovascular disease
  • 6 ideal factors = 51% lower risk of cancer

The American Heart Association’s Health Screening Services offers a comprehensive solution that goes miles beyond the stand-alone health assessments.   It includes:Picture5-1
