With heart disease as a leading cause of death in the United States, claiming the lives of more than 650,000 people each year, the folks at MountainView Regional Medical Center are challenging the community to work toward healthy hearts.
Since 1964, February has been recognized as American Heart Month – a time of year dedicated to increasing awareness about heart health and highlighting steps we can take to create a heart healthy lifestyle.
This year, MountainView is taking the month of February to help people in the community learn ways to reduce their risks with the 28-Day Healthy Heart Challenge. Participants will receive a daily email with short, informative articles, quick tips, and a daily challenge to promote heart health.
“People who join us for this challenge will find the content takes only a couple of minutes to read each day,” said MountainView CEO Matt Conrad. “It is fun, sometimes surprising, always informative, and it can be life saving. I hope everyone will sign up for the challenge and join us on a 28-day journey to a healthier heart.”
The 28-Day Healthy Heart Challenge includes 28 challenges that can help participants eat healthier, get up from a sedentary lifestyle, relieve stress and lower blood pressure. To sign-up for the 28-Day Healthy Heart Challenge, visit https://www.mountainviewregional.com/heart-challenge.
