Supreme Court Ruling is Right Decision for America
February is American Heart Month
While heart disease is the number one cause of death for all of us – Hispanics, non-Hispanics, Latinos, and Latinas - there are things we can do to prevent it. Heart disease rarely develops suddenly, and in most cases evolves over time. To have a healthy heart, we need to exercise more and make better food choices. Take the steps to move your life in a heart healthy direction.
You can also get answers to all of your questions, and we can even help you find a health care provider where you live! Call the Buena SaludTM
