Heart disease is a silent killer and the number one cause of death in the
United States. While heart disease may not manifest any debilitating symptoms
before a heart attack or stroke occurs, your physician can assess the
condition of your cardiovascular system and risk of sustaining a cardiac event.
Though heart disease is a prevalent problem in the U.S., it is also a preventable
one. Changes in diet, exercise, and lifestyle can help you avoid and even
undo the damage to your heart and arteries. Our Community Health Department
offers a wide array of
health screenings throughout the community. Learn more about the condition of your heart
and what you can do to take action against heart disease.
