Promoting Heart Health for Everybody!
The Midlands Goes Red with Lexington Medical Center
Heart disease is an epidemic in South Carolina. One out of every three deaths in our state is related to cardiovascular disease. We want to bring awareness to the high rate of heart disease and stroke in the Midlands, and help move our state away from its high rate of cardiovascular disease.
Heart disease takes a life every 39 seconds - mothers, fathers, siblings, spouses and friends. And it's not just a man's disease - more women than men die of heart disease each year and heart disease is the number one killer of women. Risk factors include excessive weight, high blood pressure and smoking.
Lexington Medical Center hopes that with help from our community, we can move away from this dangerous course and steer toward a healthier future.
So we are giving away our 2013 Heart-Health Calendar.
It's a calendar full of heart health information, recipes, and much more.
