Healthy Heart Classes
Did you know that roughly 1 in 3 American adults are affected by high blood pressure that may lead to heart attacks and strokes? According to American Heart Association, about 82% are aware of their condition and 75% are using antihypertensive medication, yet only 53% of those have their condition controlled.
The stresses of a fast-paced lifestyle, an unhealthy diet, lack of proper exercise, being overweight and having chronic diseases places millions of Americans at risk for heart attacks, strokes, and other chronic-disease related complications. Yet, controlling the risks and living a healthy life is possible, so don’t become a statistic!
