Risk Evaluation
to Achieve
Cardiovascular Health

We've all been told the importance of a healthy lifestyle in adulthood to help prevent heart attacks and type 2 diabetes. But did you know that the risk begins way before we become "grownups?" This is especially true for children who have a family history of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other risk factors that can contribute to heart disease later in life.

Here at the Cook Children's Risk Evaluation to Achieve Cardiovascular Health (REACH) clinic, we're dedicated to providing excellent, patient-centered care, as well as access to the most up-to-date therapies and clinical research. Our REACH team is committed to improving the lives and well-being of children who are at risk or affected by obesity, high blood pressure or high blood fats. We do this through a complete medical history, as well as changes in lifestyle, education and, when necessary, medication.

Doctor and patient at Cook Children's REACH programCardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. And while it is rare for children or teens to have a heart attack, many of the preventable cardiovascular problems that develop in adulthood begin in childhood. Fortunately, reducing the risk of heart attack can also begin very early in life.
