Heart Month: Every Step Counts Toward Your Heart Health
Approximately every 40 seconds someone in the U.S. has a heart attack and about 14% of those people don’t survive. Many people feel fine until the day they have their first heart attack. Having a healthy heart involves leading a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Ramford Ng, Stanford Medicine interventional cardiologist, discusses the importance of prevention and how simple it can be.
Note: In 2019, heart disease was the leading cause of death among men and women in the U.S. COVID-19 is currently the leading cause of death. To learn how Stanford Health Care is protecting patients, visit our COVID-19 Resource Center.
