Your Heart is in the Right Place

For Heart Month this year, make lasting changes that will keep your heart healthy.

Heart disease remains the leading cause of death among men and women in the United States, but it’s also one of the most preventable. We recognize Heart Month every February in order to bring awareness to this disease and remind ourselves to pay attention to our hearts and what it might be telling us.

Make Changes for Your Heart

The American Heart Association says that by 2035, 45% of adults in the U.S. will live with some form of cardiovascular disease. However, an estimated 80% of cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and stroke, are preventable through education and small changes to our daily routines.

There are steps you can take to reduce your risk of heart disease — and one of them is just to add more steps to your day. Exercise is a great way to strengthen your heart and get your body to a healthy weight.

Other Ways to Decrease Your Risk:

The American Heart Association recommends that heart disease prevention begins early in life. Protect your heart — and your overall health — with an annual primary care provider checkup. We’re here to help you keep the beat and hear what your heart has to say.
