Are You Doing All that You Can to Care for Your Heart?

Join Navicent Health for Heart Fest during February, American Heart Month

 
MACON, GA (Thursday, January 29, 2015) – Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women, with no regard for race or ethnicity. Deaths related to heart disease are particularly high in Georgia and the Southeast. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that one in every four deaths in the U.S. is related to heart disease. The CDC also estimates that heart disease costs the U.S. almost $109 billion each year through healthcare services, medications and lost productivity.

While statistics on the deadliness of this disease are staggering, there are steps individuals may take to prevent this chronic disease. Navicent Health is dedicated to battling heart disease by giving central Georgians the tools they need to live heart healthy lives.
