Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. To prevent heart disease and increase awareness of its effects, Middlesex County Office of Health Services is proudly participating in American Heart Month, and will be wearing RED on Friday, February 3, 2017 to show support for National Wear Red Day.

In addition to raising awareness by wearing red, you can make healthy changes to lower your risk of developing heart disease. Controlling and preventing risk factors is also important for people who already have heart disease. To lower your risk:

  •  Watch your weight.
  • Quit smoking and stay away from secondhand smoke.
  • Control your cholesterol and blood pressure.
  • If you drink alcohol, drink only in moderation.
  • Get active and eat healthy.​
