Heart Health

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are among the nation's leading killers for both men and women and among all racial and ethnic groups. More than 59 million Americans are suffering from these diseases, which include, hypertension, coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, stroke, and others. CVD doesn't just affect men and older adults. More than half of the deaths from CVD occur among women, and it also strikes people who are in the prime of their lives. It is possible to reduce your chances of developing CVD by managing its known risk factors. And if you are currently living with CVD, there are several ways that you can improve or continue to enjoy your current quality of life. Exercise, proper diet, and/or medications can have a positive impact on your life. Please talk with your doctor about any health concerns you may have.
