Prevent Heart Disease and Get Screened
Are you worried about heart disease? It’s a valid concern as we grow older, especially if you have a family history of heart conditions. But your parent’s heart health isn’t the only risk factor. Your age, lifestyle, vitals like blood pressure and cholesterol, health history, and other key factors put you at risk. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America for both men and women.
