Taking Charge of Your Heart Health: Virtual Event Wednesday, September 16
Lebanon, NH – Managing children’s new school schedules or balancing adjusted work schedules can cause stress and an elevated sensation that your heart is pounding outside of your chest. What that feeling is in fact is high blood pressure brought on by stress, poor-diet and lack of activity, which many American’s are facing during these challenging times.
More than 30 percent of adults live with high blood pressure, and many don’t know it, which is why it is often called the “silent killer.” And for many that know they do have high blood pressure they may not be taking the measures needed to bring their blood pressure under control.
On Wednesday, September 16, from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm, Merle Myerson, MD, cardiologist and director of Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Services & Lipid Clinic at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health (D-HH) will discuss how to prevent heart disease, known risk factors and the importance of knowing your numbers. Myerson will also address healthy eating, exercise, heredity factors and available treatments.
“Staying at home more often and self-isolation along with gyms closing have resulted in less physical activity and for some, weight gain,” said Myerson. “With the upcoming cold weather, it’s helpful to strategize now on how you can be active and make heart-healthy choices.”
