Doylestown Health is partnering with local organizations to offer the community a healthy, delicious breakfast, 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 preventive care.
