My Life Check is a health assessment and improvement tool that encourages you to take actions and form habits to move toward ideal heart health. The tool uses information about your diet, exercise and other key measures of health to identify your areas of greatest opportunity for health improvement and generate a custom action plan tailored specifically to you.

The American Heart Association created My Life Check to help people protect against their number one health threat – heart disease. The My Life Check recommendations are based on the science of ideal heart health, and designed to pinpoint small changes that can yield big results. There are seven (7) important predictors of heart health that the assessment focuses on. Research shows that people who maintain optimal levels for just three to four of these measures cut their risk of heart-related death by more than half.
