Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Hospice Of The North Coast is proudly participating in American Heart Month.
For a regular update on events and activities, please keep checking our facebook page and blog.
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:
Use the Million Hearts ® My Personal Health Progress guide to set realistic, achievable health goals.
Track your blood pressure using a Blood Pressure Wallet Card and share results with your doctor regularly.
Keep track of important medical information, such as family medical history, medications, hospitalizations, and surgeries with the Million Hearts® Health Resume.
