Heart Health Blog Post Banner

It’s February – American Heart Month– a time when the nation spotlights the importance of good cardiovascular health.

According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, causing one in four deaths each year.  Nearly half of all American adults have at least one major risk factor for cardiovascular disease.  

Heart-healthy living involves understanding your risk, making healthy choices, and taking steps to reduce your chances of getting heart disease, including coronary heart disease, the most common type.

On February 22nd at 2pm, you can attend an informative workshop  “Heart Health Matters” that will be presented by Claudia Irmiere, NP Cardiac Services at Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center. She will cover ways to reduce your risk of heart disease, such as management of cholesterol and other lifestyle changes to keep your heart healthy, along with new technologies related to heart health. The presentation will also dive into topics like cardiac medications, and cardiac issues such as signs and symptoms of a heart attack, cardiomyopathy, and heart rhythm disorders such as palpitations, heart racing and irregular heartbeat, and what can be done to detect or monitor them. No registration is required to attend.

Here are some books available with your Library card that you consult as you strive to focus more on  your cardiac health.
