As Valentine’s Day approaches and chocolate hearts fill the supermarket candy aisles, it is a good time to think about our real heart and our heart health. The key to better cardio health is taking the right preventative steps year-round. For Veterans, the VA has a variety of telehealth and mobile technologies to improve Veteran heart health outcomes. Next Tuesday on February 15th, USAA is teaming up with VA’s Office of Connected Care for a Facebook Live event to learn more.


During the event, USAA and Connected Care will talk about how tools like Remote Patient Monitoring – Home Telehealth (RPM-HT) help protect Veterans from COVID and drastically improve health outcomes in areas like TeleCardiology. VA experts Dr. Leonie Heyworth, Deputy Director for Clinical Services Telehealth Services, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Kimberly Braswell, Nurse Practitioner, Cardiology for James A. Haley VA Hospital, will speak with Michael Kelly Assistant VP Military Advocacy, USAA, including answering questions from the live audience.
