National Heart Month





Powered By

February is National Heart Month!  Your heart is your hardest working muscle. It beats around 100,000 times per day!  The bad news is that more than 58 million Americans suffer from cardiovascular disease and many more are at risk for developing it.  We can help you keep your heart going strong so you can exercise, enjoy life, and keep up with your kids (or your grandkids).

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States.  Every year, 1 in 4 deaths is caused by heart disease.

The good news?  Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to create opportunities for people to make healthier choices.

Make a difference in your community: Spread the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encourage people to live heart healthy lives.
