February Is American Heart Month

Heart disease is the #1 killer of both men and women, but it is preventable. Cardiovascular diseases kill nearly 1 in 3 women each year. That's approximately one woman every 80 seconds. Fortunately, we can change that because 80% of cardiac and stroke events may be prevented with education and action.

American Heart Month is a time when The Christ Hospital Health Network looks to educate the community about heart disease and how you can improve your odds. Maintaining a healthy weight and blood pressure, quitting tobacco, and getting regular weekly exercise can help lower your risk of developing heart disease.
