Did you know Heart disease accounts for 40% of all U.S. deaths, more than all forms of cancer combined?

©    Heart disease is a broad term used to describe the various diseases that affect your heart; which includes conditions such as coronary artery disease, heart attack, cardiac arrest, congestive heart failure, and congenital heart diseases. 

Many forms of heart disease can be prevented or treated with healthy lifestyle choices. Some heart-healthy foods include salmon, ground flaxseed, oatmeal, black or kidney beans, almonds, walnuts, red wine, tuna, brown rice, and blueberries. Though Burlington County’s Health Starts Here campaign, together we can live healthier, exercise more, consume better and access health screenings offered by organizations across the county!

Health Promotion Services (HPS) is a division of Virtua’s Community Nursing Services. HPS in partnership with the Burlington County Health Department provides clinical nursing support, home visitation, health promotion and education services to Burlington county residents. FREE Heart Health and Diabetic Risk Assessment services offered on the 1st Tuesday at the Human Services Building from 9 -11 AM and at the Burlington County Library on the 2nd Wednesday from 10:30 AM – 1PM.
