Are You Strong at Heart?
Heart disease remains the number one killer of Americans, yet most women in central Ohio do not know their risks. According to a survey recently completed by Ohio State's Ross Heart Hospital, only 22 percent of Ohio women understand the danger of cardiovascular disease. Close to 75 percent of women surveyed reported at least one risk factor for heart disease, but only about 25 percent identified themselves at risk.
The choices you make today will impact your heart for the rest of your life. Heart-healthy habits should be part of every woman's lifestyle. Join us to learn how you can live a heart-healthy life.
