Doylestown Health is partnering with local organizations to offer to the community cooking demonstrations, light exercise and advice for living heart-healthy this February.
According to the American Heart Association, heart disease is still the leading cause of death in the United States. American Heart Month shines a light on the importance of taking steps to live heart-healthy through lifestyle changes and preventative care.
Doylestown Health's popular walking program, Walk With A Doc, is partnering with the Cornerstone Clubs, Sodexo and Friends of the Heart Institute to offer an interactive, fun, heart-health event for the community this February.
