Members of the Farmington Hills police and fire departments, along with officers from the Farmington Public Safety Department, received cardiac health screening tests as part of the Hearts for Heroes program back in December. Created by Dr. Justin Trivax and Dr. Herman Kado, Farmington Hills interventional cardiologists, the Hearts for Heroes program grew from an idea that originated with Trivax’s high school daughters, Tessa and Sienna. The girls learned about a local police officer who suffered a fatal heart attack while on duty, and they asked their dad to help.
The duo created the Hearts for Heroes program and reached out to several local police and fire departments. A total of 57 police officers and firefighters received coronary artery calcium scoring tests.
