@womensheartalliance CEO British Robinson was featured in @usnews this #HeartMonth where she outlined 5 heart healthy tips to prevent heart disease and stroke. Her advice: 1. Get heart checked and know your heart health numbers: cholesterol, blood pressure, fasting glucose and body mass index, among others. 2. Let your friends know that younger women’s risks are increasing and work together to eat healthier and be physically active. 3. If you experienced pre-eclampsia or gestational diabetes while pregnant, you’re at greater risk. Discuss this with your healthcare provider. 4. Don’t use tobacco or tobacco products. If you do, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW to get help quitting. 5. Know the signs: women often have different symptoms of heart attack than men do.
February is #HeartMonth, an important reminder that women are disproportionately affected by heart disease and stroke. Did you know that women are 50 percent more likely to be given a wrong diagnosis after a heart attack and are at a greater risk of dying within a year of a heart attack than men? In honor of #HeartMonth, join our fight and follow the @WomensHeartAlliance, share their messages, and most importantly — take the pledge to #getHeartChecked. Together, we can #FightTheLadykiller! #WomensHeartAlliance #WomensHealth #HeartHealth #HeartDisease #Prevention #HeartHealthy #Health
