[ARCHIVED] February is American Heart Month

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 610,000 Americans die of heart disease each year, or 1 in every 4 deaths. In Lake County, 1,248 deaths were caused by heart disease in 2017.

Caring for your heart through a healthy diet and regular physical activity is the best way to prevent heart disease.

It is also important to see your primary care physician every year, so you are aware of your blood pressure, cholesterol level, and weight. For an appointment with a Health Department provider, call (847) 377-8800.
