February is Heart Health Month
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. The good news?
It is also one of the most preventable. Making heart-healthy choices, knowing your family health history and the risk factors for heart disease, having regular check-ups and working with your physician to manage your health are all integral aspects of saving lives from this often silent killer.
This month make a difference in your community by spreading the word about strategies for preventing heart disease and encouraging those around you to have their hearts check and commit to heart-healthy lives.
In honor of two of ESLC Staff members, Mrs. Francine Wahome (rehabilitating from open heart surgery) and Mrs. Gail Mattox, we are asking that all ESLC children and staff members show their support by wearing red on Fridays.
