February is American Heart Month! 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States.  Take care of your heart.  Prevention is the key to avoiding heart disease.  The American Heart Association's "Life Simple 7" Steps may help you improve your heart health.  Even modest changes can make a difference.  Start with one or two. The seven steps are:

1) Get active

2) Control cholesterol

3) Eat better

4) Manage blood pressure

5) Lose weight

6) Reduce blood sugar

7) Stop smoking

Call Moundview's Family Clinic in Friendship or Westfield today to schedule a checkup, including health screenings, to learn if you are at risk for heart disease.
