February is Healthy Heart Month

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, ChesMRC is proudly participating in American Heart Month. Locally, 250 men and women are affected by heart disease.

  • On February 3, 2018 – wear red with ChesMRC and post pictures of your support to our Facebook Page!
  • On February 23, 2018 – join ChesMRC at 20 Bay Street, for a 20 minute walk!

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:

  • Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.
