February Community Education

February is American Heart Month and Parmer Medical Center is offering a free community education class on ways to reduce Heart Disease, including heart-healthy eating tips and physical activity.

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. About 600,000 Americans die from heart disease each year. That is 1 in every 4 deaths. Coronary heart disease is the most common type of heart disease killing more than 385,000 people annually.

Each minute, someone in the United States dies from a heart disease related event. Education is a vital step in the prevention of heart disease. High blood pressure, high LDL (bad) cholesterol, and smoking are key heart disease risk factors. Several other medical conditions and lifestyle choices can also put people at a higher risk for heart disease including: diabetes, overweight and obesity, poor diet, physical inactivity, and excessive alcohol use.

Please join us at PMC on February 23, 2015 at 10:30am in the conference room as Brenda Hoot, Nutritionist, presents tips on ways to reduce heart disease.

If you have any questions or would like additional information, please call Rhonda Wilkins at 806-250-2754.
