Heart disease, including stroke, is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. February is American Heart Month and National Women’s Heart Health Month. In recognition, WVU Medicine University Healthcare is sponsoring several programs throughout the month to educate the community on how to live a heart-healthy lifestyle.
Jefferson Medical Center and Berkeley Medical Center will be offering free blood pressure screenings in the main lobbies of each hospital from 9 until 11 am on Friday, February 17.
February heart month activities and programs are being offered as a community service of WVU Medicine University Healthcare. For more information, contact the marketing department at 304.264.1223.
