February 05, 2019
In honor of Heart Health Month in February, Schneck Primary Care will be offering free blood pressure checks on February 15 at the Brownstown Braves boys home basketball game and on February 22 at the Seymour Owls boys home basketball game.
 
Fans at both games are encouraged to wear red to the game and prizes will be awarded to those who participate in the blood pressure screening!
 
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Every year, 1 in 4 deaths are caused by heart disease. The good news? Heart disease can often be prevented when people make healthy choices and manage their health conditions. 
 
You can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:
  • Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.
 
For more information on how to lower your risk for heart disease, talk to your family care physician.
