Healthy Insights for American Heart Month

As American Heart Month comes to an end, we wanted to review the key insights that we’ve highlighted over these heart healthy four weeks:

  • We provided an overview for AHM, noting that heart health is a key component of any well-run workplace wellness program. Further, such programs can help employees with elevated risk of chronic diseases including obesity, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes, as well as help reduce health care cost for employers.
  • We recognized National Wear Red Day, the day to wear red — and heighten the focus on heart disease risks among women.
  • We outlined how a well-run workplace wellness program can help individuals set goals for American Heart Month.
  • We noted that our continuing recognition of American Heart Month marks a good time to emphasize the role that a well-run workplace wellness program can have in helping people stop smoking.
  • We reported that age should not be a barrier, highlighting a study that shows exercise at midlife helps reduce heart disease.
