National Have-a-Heart Day
February 6, 2007, Volume 53, No. 21

On Wednesday, February 14, celebrate ‘Have-a-Heart Day’ by being more conscious of your food choices. Along with regular exercise, healthy food choices are imperative for good cardiovascular health. Penn Cardiac Care offers a few tips: look for heart-healthy menus in the UPHS cafeterias next Wednesday, or take the initiative to try new food that tastes good to you and your heart.

Heart disease claims more lives than the next four most common causes of death combined. On average, one American dies of heart disease every 35 seconds.

To learn about the warning signs of heart disease and the programs provided by UPHS this month, call 1-800-789-PENN (7366) or logon to http://pennhealth.com/cardiac.
