Caring for Our Hearts

We can take back our health and help family, friends, neighbors - even ourselves - live the lives we deserve. But, because heart disease often has no noticeable warning signs, it’s important that we help each other maintain heart health through consistent action. Taking steps to reduce the risk of heart disease allows us to enjoy healthier, happier lives with the ones we love.

Exercise

Going for regular walks, bike rides, or anything that keeps your heart rate up can lower your BP and reduce your risk of heart disease.

Eat Healthy

Enjoying a healthier diet that’s high in fiber and low in saturated fat can prevent high blood cholesterol, which blocks blood flow and leads to heart disease.

Quit Smoking

Smoking increases the likelihood of blood clots, blocking the flow to your heart and brain, which can lead to heart attack and stroke. 

 

 
 
 

Know the SignS

Learning to see the signs and symptoms of a heart attack can help save you and your loved ones. They can be difficult to detect, frequently - for women, especially - they go undiagnosed, which can lead to long-term suffering and a lower quality of life for both the victim and their loved ones.

 

Call 9-1-1 if you or someone you know is having a heart attack.

  • Chest pain or discomfort that lingers for a few minutes. 
     
  • Pain or discomfort in the jaw, neck, or back. 
     
  • Light-headedness, upset stomach, weakness, or a cold sweat. 
     
  • Pain or discomfort in the arms or shoulder. 
     
  • Shortness of breath.
