Be a Heart Hero

For American Heart Month this February, KentuckyOne Health is encouraging you to be a heart hero by taking action to fight heart disease – the leading cause of death for men and women. You won’t need the ability to fly or superhuman strength. All you need is a little bit of time and a willingness to learn about heart health – information that could help you or a loved one in the future.

How do I become a heart hero?

Here are three different ways you can be a heart hero:

  1. Learn hands-only CPR: In just a few minutes, you can learn the two simple steps that could save someone’s life.
  2. Know Your Numbers: Knowing numbers like your blood pressure, cholesterol and more will give you an idea of how healthy you are.
  3. Learn the warning signs and risk factors of a heart attack and make changes in your life to help prevent one: Many of the risk factors for heart attack can be modified or managed with your commitment to living healthy.

Hands-only CPR is easy to do and it saves lives. Watch the video below to learn more from Dr. Lorrel Brown.
