February is…
American Heart Health Month

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Caring Health Center is proudly participating in American Heart Month. Heart disease and stroke are the first and third leading causes of death in Massachusetts; total hospital charges for cardiovascular disease surpassed $3 billion.


Join us on National Wear Red Day®, February 5, 2016, and throughout the month to raise your voice in support of heart disease awareness and prevention, in efforts to help women learn their risk for heart disease. Show your support by wearing something red—a red dress, sweater or scarf—and encourage your neighbors, coworkers, friends and loved ones to do the same.  

You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:

Watch your weight.

Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.

Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.

If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.

Get active and eat healthy.
