Posted by on Feb 6, 2015 in Blogs | 0 comments


Did you know that heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States? It’s true. It is commonly referred to as the “Silent Killer,” due to its lack of concrete symptoms. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease, or approximately 600,000 Americans. Sponsored by the American Heart Association, February marks American Heart Month.
