May is Heart Month. According to the Portugueses National Health Service, cardiovascular diseases continue to be the leading cause of death in Portugal and Europe. As such, this month is dedicated to raising awareness of the problem of these diseases for the health and quality of life of the population and the prevention of risk factors for them.

● Assessment of overall cardiovascular risk and risk of diabetes;
● Foot assessment for diabetic patients;
