Public health holding weekly heart healthy events.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in the United States. Everyone has been affected by this disease or knows someone who has been affected. Macon County Public Health is taking this opportunity to raise awareness for cardiovascular disease in February, American Heart Month by hosting a heart healthy event every Thursday evening during February starting at 5:30 p.m. for the community. Show yourself some love and come out and participate in heart healthy activities and education free of charge.
