As we’re sure you’ve noticed, February is all about YOUR heart. Here at Physicians East, we are excited to launch our first ever “Start Living Heart Smart” campaign. For the entire month of February¬ – which not-so-coincidentally, is National Heart Month – We will talk about heart disease, prevention, risk factors and the importance of heart screenings. We will also be sharing some tips on how you can Start Living Heart Smart every day. So be on the lookout for exercise tips, great Heart Smart recipes and several patient education articles to help keep you better informed about heart disease and what you can do to prevent it. Below are a few tips to get you started. While these statistics certainly are cause for concern, hopefully they serve as the first step in a major wake up call that each and every one of us could use.
