According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is the number one cause of death in the United States. In our country, approximately 790,000 people have a heart attack each year – that’s about one every 40 seconds. Those who understand the facts about heart health, however, can reduce their risk for developing heart disease and learn how to live healthy.
February is known as American Heart Month! Parkview Health, in partnership with the Parkview Heart Institute and Parkview’s community hospitals, will host a series of heart-healthy events and activities aimed at increasing the awareness of heart disease.
National Wear Red Day
Friday, Feb. 2
Parkview co-workers throughout northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio are invited to help raise awareness of heart disease by wearing red on this national awareness day.
