6 Opportunities to Reduce Your Heart Disease Risk in August

Heart Disease Prevention Events August

At Emory Healthcare, we’re always doing what we can to provide free educational resources to our patients. We hold events each month for people to embrace their health and focus on opportunities for prevention and wellness. With that in mind, we are excited to announce the August lectures in the HeartWiseSM Risk Reduction Program Lecture Series!

The HeartWise program aims to reduce people’s risk of heart disease through education and interaction. In addition to serving patients who currently suffer from heart disease, we also provide help to individuals who could be at risk for heart complications in the future including those who smoke, do not exercise or have high blood pressure.
