Heart disease is the number one cause of death in women who live in the U.S., and stroke is the number three cause. February is American Heart Month and the Preventitive Cardiovascular Nurses Association (PCNA) has launched a campaign, Tell A Friend. Women should know their numbers: cholesterol level, blood pressure, BMI, blood sugar, and waist measurement. They need to know the symptoms of heart attack and stroke, also.
PositiveTip: Always know your numbers! Use the PCNA resources to educate your daughters, sisters, mothers and friends.
