Did you know that the leading cause of death in women is heart disease! African American women are twice as likely as white women to develop heart disease and diabetes. Age, race, and family history are things we cannot change to reduce the risks for developing these conditions. However, when you consider a person’s lifestyle, there are changes that can be made to lower the risks. Lifestyle affects so many of the “risk factors” that increase our odds of being overweight/obese and getting heart disease and diabetes. 

The good news is that we can lower our risks by making physical activity an integral part of daily life and combining these efforts with nutritious meal planning to promote heart health and a healthy weight. The Be Heart Smart program aims to do just that. The program provides education and health screenings that inform you about your risk factors for developing heart disease, diabetes and obesity. 

Be Fit. Be Healthy. Be Heart Smart.
