Celebrate Heart Month with VCU Health Pauley Heart Center

Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease.
Every 60 seconds, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease-related event.
Additionally, in the United States, someone has a heart attack every 34 seconds.

Can we prevent Heart Disease? YES! You are never too young— or too old — to take care of your heart. Preventing heart disease (and all cardiovascular diseases) means making smart choices now that will pay off the rest of your life. Lack of exercise, a poor diet and other unhealthy habits can take their toll over the years. Anyone at any age can benefit from simple steps to keep their heart healthy during each decade of life.

These are just some reasons why that during the month of February we focus on sharing Heart Health facts and tips so we can make these changes. Additionally, we want to celebrate those who have made changes and hit their milestones!
