Workshops on Healthy Heart Lifestyle

At Healthy Heart Series, we strive to educate people about heart mortality rate and the complications that lead to cardiac arrests. We aim to reduce the disparities that exist in heart disease among various groups through education, outreach, prevention, and intervention.

About Heart Health

We approach the targeted presentation of each risk factor on a monthly basis. We educate people about the tools, which help in adopting a healthier lifestyle, i.e., including physical activity and emotional wellness activities.
