HEART HEALTH IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER
There are some basic statistics that blow my mind!!
- There are 116 million adults in the U.S. with high blood pressure! (That's nearly 1 in 2 people...and I'm one of them.)
- High blood pressure has nearly tripled among men age 20 to 44!
- High blood pressure has almost doubled in women under 45 years of age!
I walk because the American Heart Association and OMRON Healthcare have a goal of reducing deaths due to heart attack and stroke. The CDC states that nearly 80% of cardiac events are preventable. Help me help others get educated and take action!
P.S. The photo of me was taken with Matt Forte, former Chicago Bear. He walked with us 3 years ago, before the pandemic sidelined for awhile. But you can't keep us down!
