February is American Heart Month, when everyone, especially women, are encouraged to focus on cardiovascular health and heart disease – the leading cause of death in the United States. You can keep your heart healthy by taking small steps each day to protect your heart health, such as adding more movement to your day or choosing healthy foods.
You can also take action by scheduling a blood pressure screening and nurse consultation with Health Services at (510) 486-6266.
Help raise heart health awareness by wearing red on Friday, Feb. 2. Those arriving at the Lab’s hill site Friday will be given a reminder sticker at Lab gates.
