[ARCHIVED] February is American Heart Month

According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, causing about 1 in 4 deaths. In Lake County, 1,006 deaths were caused by heart disease in 2019.

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.
