“Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States.”

But did you know that with preventative measures, heart disease can be avoided?

Some ways you can proactively prevent heart disease include:

  • Exercising
  • Maintaining a healthy diet
  • Refraining from smoking

Get a health screening, and be sure to check your stress level from time to time. Stress isn’t good for our hearts! Encourage your family to follow these guidelines and make sure to refer to your health professional if you have any concerns.
