At the upcoming Feb. 24, Ladies Night Out program, the topic will be My Heart Beats For You (Heart Health). The guest speaker will be Dr. Kit Helm.
February is Heart Health Month. During the month of February, Americans see the human heart as the symbol of love. Learn about risks for heart disease and stroke and stay "heart healthy" for yourself and your loved ones. Cardiovascular disease (CVD) — including heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure — is the number one killer of women and men in the United States. It is a leading cause of disability, preventing Americans from working and enjoying family activities. CVD costs the United States more than $300 billion each year, including the cost of health care services, medications, and lost productivity.
