If you are at risk for developing heart disease, you can take action to prevent it. Although some risk factors for heart disease, such as age and family history, are not within your control, many others are. Lowering your cholesterol, quitting smoking, getting more exercise and effectively managing your blood pressure can help prevent heart disease before it strikes.
Sutter’s Heart Smart classes empower people who have risk factors for heart disease to make these positive lifestyle changes. In a supportive group setting, knowledgeable experts offer the latest information about risk factors for heart disease and stroke and easy-to-incorporate lifestyle changes that can improve your health and lower your chances of developing heart disease.
Heart Smart classes are offered at various Sutter locations throughout Northern California.
